Cattails Beauty All Around Us, Chain O'Lakes State Park
Start Date: 7/21/2018Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 7/21/2018End Time: 3:00 PM
Event Description:
Park visitors are invited to learn with Miami Tribal member and Plant Tradition Bearer, Dani Tippmann, about Miami traditional plant usage. We will focus on Cattails in the Fall. If the cattails cooperate visitors will be able to taste traditional Cattail foods! Miami Tribal youth will assist Dani and be on hand to encourage park visitors to learn How to make cattail mats. These are what cover the outsides of wiikiami or traditional Miami homes.

We'll also learn about the beautiful way cattails touch all of our lives. Chain O'Lakes is excited to host this wonderful artist outside at Stanley Schoolhouse starting at 2 pm.

This program is made possible through the support of the Indiana Arts Commission in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. This is the final program of a three part series by this artist this summer.
