STORY TIME WITH UŊČĺ & LALÁ
How the Oceans Came to Be

June 25 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Join us for Story Time every Tuesday at 10:30 AM CDT. While the program is designed for elementary-age children, stories read by elders from the Lakota and Dakota communities will be captivating for children of all ages.

Today our story is How the Oceans Came to BeWritten by Arvis Boughman. Illustrated by Alfreda Beartrack-Algeo.  Published by 7th Generation. (September 2022)

About the story:  In this delightful Lumbee story, clever Rabbit outsmarts a selfish Great Snapping Turtle. When Rabbit discovers many animals cannot find water, he sets out to solve the mystery. What he finds is the Great Snapping Turtle blocking the water of the Mother Spring. When the stubborn turtle refuses to move, Rabbit figures out a way to let the water flow. As the water flowed to all creatures, it also created the oceans of Turtle Island.

Following the reading, there will be a cultural activity.  The event is free and open to everyone – come join the fun!
