“Mni Wiconi,” a saying of the indigenous people of Lakota, South Dakota, means “Water is Life.” With visiting Caddo Native American storyteller Joe Cross, hear time-honored stories about the importance of water for all people. Follow his lead in group movement and dance resembling water and honoring this vital resource. Make a simple pinch or coil, air-dry clay pot inspired by the patterns of authentic Caddo pots, with designs showing the beautiful, directional flow of swirling water.

Free with admission to the grounds.
