Dear Earth Family Day: Featuring Potawatomi Story Telling

Sunday October 07, 2018

Times: 1 - 2:30 p.m.

Dear Earth Family Day: Featuring Potawatomi Story Telling

Join us for fun, fall-filled activities before our second Dear Earth event. Explore nature and native culture through a traditional drumming and storytelling session with Skip Twardosz, a singer, dancer, and native historian of Potawatomi descent. Skip is a former member of the Chicago American Indian Center and has functioned as Storyteller, Fire Keeper and Elder for many Native gatherings in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana. Guests can also experience live exotic reptiles up close, and enjoy seasonal apple tasting, a campfire with s’mores, and the special Riverwoods Student Exhibition: Art in the Woods. Don’t forget to stick around for our Dear Earth talk from 3-4, featuring artist Kaye Buchman, professor and author Liam Heneghan, and moderator Gavin Van Horn from the Center for Humans and Nature. This talk focuses on the role of nature in myth, legend, and storytelling, and aligns with Kaye’s art exhibition “Head in the Trees,” on display at Brushwood from September 16-October 28.”
