StoryCraft: How the Earth was Formed

Sun., June 7, 2015 | 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Just for kids: hear stories from the best Native Storytellers in the Northwest! This three-part series features Native artists sharing stories that have been a part of their cultures for hundreds of years. Each story will be paired with a unique craft activity that children can build at the Burke and take home with them.

June 7, the last of the StoryCrafts, How the Earth Was Formed: Gene Tagaban and Sondra Segundo team up to share traditional tales of the how the earth was brought into existence, and the early formation of animals, plants and humans. 

Special craft activity: learn the basics of formline drawing and draw your own magical creatures.
