Forsyth County Public Library Celebrates Native American Heritage Month

Several Forsyth County Public Library branches are hosting programs throughout November about the history and traditions of our nation's Indigenous people.

Wednesday, Nov. 1-30 (while supplies last): The Southside Branch Library has take-home craft kits that celebrate the Navaho tribe's tradition of basket weaving. This tradition was adopted from ancestral Puebloan people, as was many other Navaho art forms.

Thursday, Nov. 9 at 5 p.m.: Forsyth County Central Library's Teen Central is hosting a program about talking sticks, which were used by Indigenous cultures to ensure that people are respectful of one another at meetings. Read the webstory to learn more about the program.

Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 5:30 p.m.: The Central Library and the Lam Museum of Anthropology are hosting a Create and Learn program about dreamcatchers, which have been a widespread Native American practice for centuries. Learn about the history and traditions of dreamcatchers and make one of your own. Check out the the webstory and register to attend the program.

All Forsyth County Public Library programs are free and open to the public.
