FLORENCE-The Florence Indian Mound Museum is hosting a series of children’s programs where students can explore the early history of the Shoals through short lessons and hands-on learning exercises. The programs will explore 12 Native American figures through their biographies, contributions, hopes, and accomplishments. Students will be given a passport with the 12 figures; they will receive a stamp for each program attended. Students who collect 6, 9, or 12 stamps will receive an award.

Join us on Saturday, February 18th at 10 for a program and activity about Chickasaw storyteller Te Ata. Born Mary Thompson Fisher in Oklahoma in 1895, she later took the stage name “Te Ata” which means “Bearer of the Morning.” Te Ata became an actor and storyteller, preserving Chickasaw stories through words, artistic interpretations, and children’s books. This free program and activity will explore her life and contributions and the importance of storytelling.

This program is free and is sponsored by the City of Florence Department of Arts and Museums and the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area. The Florence Indian Mound Museum is located at 1028 S. Court St. Florence, AL and is open, Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sundays from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Call 256-760-6427 for more information.
