Join us on Saturday, October 9, from 10am to 4pm at the Washakie Museum for our FREE Indigenous Peoples’ Day event! This is a celebration of Native American culture, history, and accomplishments. The event is taking place outdoors and there will be limited seating, so feel free to bring your own lawn chair. The day will be filled with speakers, children’s classes, a documentary screening, dancing, and more!
Come and celebrate the culture, history, and contributions of American Indians during Indigenous Peoples’ Day at the Washakie Museum! Activities and events for the day include an opening ceremony by Shoshone elder, Willie LeClair, performances by the Wind River Dancers, a full-length screening of the documentary film Home from School: Children of Carlisle and a panel discussion with the filmmakers, children’s classes with hands-on activities, exhibitions by native artists, and more!
We are also proud to be hosting The Red Road Project, which documents, through words and visuals, the inspiring and resilient stories of Native America. The Red Road Project is a platform for Native American people to tell their stories of past, present, and future through their own voice and words. The exhibit’s curators and creators, Danielle SeeWalker and Carlotta Cardana, will be giving a presentation about their work.
