Explore & More Children's Museum Celebrates Iroquois Day of Sharing

EAST AURORA, N.Y.- Spend the day learning more about local Native American culture and art on Wednesday, July 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., as Explore & More Children’s Museum celebrates the Iroquois Day of Sharing. Funded by the New York State Council on the Arts Folk Art Program and Fisher- Price, the day’s activities will include several local Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) artists engaging your entire family in the traditions of their work – and even letting you try! Check out this great schedule!

11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Strawberry Workshop with Vivian Bradley.  Make strawberries out of felt just as a bead worker might do before they begin to work on a beaded image of one. The Haudenosaunee culture has long thought of the strawberry as a gift of the Creator.  It was one of the plants brought to this world by Sky Woman who is part of the creation story.
