Native Storytime w/ Karen Kitchen (Osage Nation)
Native Storytime with Karen Kitchen
Saturday, 10:30 am (lower level)
In celebration of Native American Heritage month, this special storytime will combine traditional oral stories and songs, a read-aloud, and an opportunity to participate with rhythm instruments. Karen Kitchen (Osage Nation) is a PreK-12 educator with over three decades of service in urban Title VI Indian Education programs. Karen enjoys performing tribally-specific songs to inspire and educate Native and non-Native audiences about Indigenous history, contemporary issues, and the diversity and beauty of American Indian music. In September 2021, her duo, The Prairie Blossoms, performed at the grand opening of the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City and shared music from their CD, “Till the Star Rises Here.”
