Prairie Pines Nature Preserve recognizes the culture and nature ethics of America’s first people.

At 9:30, with drum and song, Lakota storyteller, Jerome Kills Small, will provide a presentation for children and adults, “Children Stories, Animal Stories and Traditional Lakota Stories.” At 10:45 he will speak about the “Seven Sacred Rights of the Lakota.”

Mr. Kills Small taught Native American thought, history, language and culture at the University of South Dakota for 20 years and is a translator of Lakota songs and a ceremony organizer.

Kids can explore books in the Corn Crib Library, and visitors can create an Ojibwa willow dreamcatcher after the presentations.
