Journeying Through the American Indian Way of Life
A Road Scholar Program by Kim Sigafus
Feb 17, 2022
Open to the public
In this presentation, Kim takes the audience through the American Indian way of life as it once was.
Kim talks about the tribes that once inhabited Illinois and does a brief history of the Trail of Tears as it pertains to those tribes. She’ll take an in-depth look at a typical day in the life of a Native in the early 1800’s and discusses how many of those traditions are still relevant today. Native harvest, music, courting, marriage, and more will be discussed.
A question-and-answer period will follow.
