The next program in the Brown Bag/Local Lore series will feature Kim Sigafus, who will discuss Native American traditions during her Nov. 7 talk, “A Peek into the American Indian Way of Life Through Their History and Oral Traditions.”
The program, hosted in recognition of November as Native American Heritage month, will be held at noon at Northern Illinois University’s Pick Museum of Anthropology.
During her program, Sigafus invites people into the world of the American Indian to discover what it once was to be native, and what it means to be native now. An Ojibwa, Sigafus will wear her traditional native regalia and will present on native culture through oral traditions, language and history. She will discuss native encampment life and will drum and sing an Ojibwa lullaby.
A traditional recipe handout will be available, and there will be a Q&A at the end of the presentation.
This talk is part of the Brown Bag Lunch/Local Lore program that is a partnership between the DeKalb County History Center and the Ellwood House. This program will be held at NIU’s Pick Museum in Cole Hall. Parking is available in the Visitor Parking Lot; there is a charge of $5.
For this program, the talk will be held in the museum, and food is not allowed in this space. However, coffee and cookies will be served afterward in the hallway outside the Pick Museum.
This talk is funded by the Illinois Humanities Road Scholar program.
