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. Each
month will feature a practice that relates to Native American culture; participants will explore the history
and cultural meaning behind each practice while engaging in an activity related to that practice.
Join us on Saturday, November 18th at 10 a.m. for a program and activity about Native American
Storytelling.

Native American Storytelling is an important practice historically and in the present. Stories are
shared over generations teaching the how’s and why’s of the world, keeping Native American culture
alive. Join us for a short informational presentation on storytelling and how it shaped and sustained
different Native American cultures. After the presentation, students will have the opportunity to create
their own stories with an interactive animal activity, which they can take home or share as part of our
youth education exhibit.

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.
