Library hosts Native American program for children

The Milford Public Library will host the Institute of Native American Indian Studies, offering an interactive presentation for adults and children in grades four and up based on the One City, One Story title: Jim Thorpe, Original All-American.

The program will discuss Jim Thorpe’s tribe, The Sac & Fox, and how it relates to local Milford tribes.

Attendees will learn history and present day information of local Native American tribes and how they relate to the community.

Educators from the Institute will be on hand to answer questions and will be bringing authentic items for “show and tell.”

This event was funded by a grant through CT Humanities, and takes place Monday, May 23, at 6:30PM at the Milford Public Library.
