Program teaches kids about Native American heritage

A diverse program brought kids to the Onalaska Public Library to recognize November as Native American Heritage Month.

Special guest and professional storyteller, Debra Morningstar, shared an interactive presentation with children, which included ancient songs and stories.

Morningstar also brought her traveling museum, which gives children a chance to interact with cultural items.

Programs like this teach youth about the importance of diversity, and understanding the culture of indigenous peoples.

“This is an important event to really celebrate diversity and the rich cultural heritage not only of our place in La Crosse but in the broader state, throughout the nation, and the world,” Dawn Lippman, Youth Services Coordinator at La Crosse County Library, said.

La Crosse County Library systems offers programs like this one throughout each month.
