Help kids decorate shoulder bags at our Native Art Exhibit Opening!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Great Lakes Children's Museum


Happy Equinox! We are celebrating this fall equinox with Jamie John, a native artist who has created a map of the Anishinaabeg migration from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. Jamie will give a short talk about native migration and planting practices (which you are welcome to listen to) and then we will decorate shoulder bags (or bandolier bags) which is where we need your help!

We need one or two helpers to assist kids and their caregivers in decorating their bags. No experience is necessary! We just need help passing out markers and supplies and helping kids use those markers!
