New Program, “Sacred Bison,” at ND Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK - Toddlers and preschoolers are invited to participate in “Sacred Bison” on March 14 at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. Participants will learn the importance of bison in providing food, clothing, shelter, and more for American Indian people. They will look at items made from bison, including a boat, a hoe, and a tipi and listen to an American Indian story about bison. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The program is part of “Little Kids, Big World,” a free interactive learning series sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota. These fun, hands-on 30-minute programs introduce children to North Dakota’s fascinating history—from dinosaurs through today’s ongoing story. The final program in the series is “Working Wind” on March 21.
The programs are led by Stephanie Schick, a gallery guide at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. She is a graduate of Northern Arizona University who previously worked as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa. Schick, who has a passion for history, science, and education, loves to travel and has taught in schools in Kenya and Egypt.
Participants are asked to meet at the east entrance information desk at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. For more information, contact Erik Holland, 701.328.2792. For more programs sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota, go to history.nd.gov.
