Perfect Day for a Book Launch Party!

On June 22nd, a book launch party was held on the museum grounds. Twenty-two of the authors of stories in Prairie Christmas were first to view and purchase copies of our new publication. A special cake with a picture of the cover and iced tea were served to the guest authors.

National Aboriginal Day, June 21st

Our museum helped the Cut Knife Elementary School celebrate National Aboriginal Day on June 21st. Four of our artifacts were displayed and then researched on the internet by groups of students. A hide scaper, miniature teepee, stone hammer, example of beadwork, and arrowheads helped the students learn about the Cree and other tribes' cultures. After the research was completed, the students then played a game that tested their knowledge of Aboriginal facts. Everyone seemed to be enthusiastic and enjoyed the time!
