Participants should bring a prepared dish to share, table service, drink and a $1 donation for the provided main dish. A presentation by the vice chief of the Miami Nation of Indiana will follow.

Senior Fall Fest will include more than a dozen programs, including presentations on Miami language and culture to hands-on craft sessions on beading, finger weaving and flint napping.
