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.

This event is Free and Open to the public. For more information, please contact Matt Miller at
