Create a Treasure Bag Thursday, July 24 2 pm
Craft Activity Celebrating Native American Culture
Traditionally called a Medicine Bag, these small leather pouches were used by the village Shaman to carry natural remedies along with representations of spirit animals believed to heal the sick. Today’s Medicine Bags hold treasures dear to our hearts. Parents may put a lock of their child’s hair in it; children carry a favorite toy, charm, or marble in theirs. Join the Museum staff to participate in this deeply rooted Native American tradition and make a Treasure Bag of your own! What treasures will you put inside?
Healing Journeys and Water Strategies: The SNOWY Project Thursday, Aug 7 6:30 pm Presented by: Professor Melinda Laituri, Ecosystem Science and Sustainability Director, Geospatial Centroid, CSU Natural Environmental Science $5 Public Free to Members
Yukon River Communities are on the cutting edge of climate change where adaptation is essential, change is constant, and a subsistence lifestyle is under threat. Professor Melinda Laituri will describe the current situation in three communities in the lower Yukon River delta as they adapt to climate change. In partnership with the Yukon River Inter-tribal Watershed Council, researchers are examining changing snow conditions and water quality in the Yukon River. Working closely with local communities, healing journeys have been launched to link communities and share stories of resource use and needs.
Admission to the Museum: $5 adults, $3 seniors/students, & $1 children.
