Native Twelve Days of Christmas
Tues. 12/13 11a: An innovative new children’s book called the “Native American Twelve Days of Christmas” creatively adapts the traditional English Christmas carol to describe and illustrate the unique cultures and traditions of twelve Native American tribes across Indian Country.
Readers of all ages will be delighted by the illustrations and the gifts for each day. If you were to present a single gift from your tribe that reveals the essence of your people, what would you give? Guests are the book’s illustrator Jesse Hummingbird (Cherokee) and author Gary Robinson (Choctaw/Cherokee).
