Cultural Preservation through Beading with Wanis Running Buffalo
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9 - BENTONVILLE, AR: The Museum of Native American History (MONAH) is proud to present Wanis Running Buffalo for the next edition of Creative Visions! Creative Visions: Cultural Preservation through Beading with Wanis Running Buffalo will be held Saturday, November 9, 2019 at 5:30 PM. Runningbuffalo will lead participants through the process of beading their own necklace while explaining the significance of what they are doing, from the colors and the patterns of the beads to the lifeline this act continues to provide to Plains culture. Creative Visions is a monthly series that invites Native artists to speak and lead workshops on modern and traditional forms of Native American Art. MONAH seeks to preserve and spread historical traditions by bringing them into a modern view and experience. By surrounding participants with historical art and artifacts, they will be invited into opportunities to cultivate understanding, respect, and increased awareness of cultural context by a hands-on exploration of Native art. Creative Visions is open to anyone ages 14 and older. Participants must register for free at https://www.monah.us/creative-visions-2/cultural-preservation-through-beading-with-wanis-running-buffalo or by calling the museum.
