WarnerHow much do we value our children?

Honor the Children Day is exclusively sponsored by the Board of Trustees at Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner. The museum is celebrating children of the past, current and future with a special event to be held at the Museum on Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Honor the Children Day is a day for children of all ages and cultures to come and have fun at the museum. They can learn to make rattles, listen to a traditional storyteller, play games, enjoy a variety of crafts and hear a Native American Elder share with the children. Older children, under supervision, can learn how to throw a tomahawk, maybe even parents can try too. Later in the afternoon, the children can do the “Honor Dance,” using the very same rattles they have made themselves. It is a day to bring everyone together to have fun and enjoy being outdoors in the wonderful New Hampshire summer. Because the Board of Trustees is sponsoring this special day, admission to the event is free. Bring along a picnic lunch and enjoy the entire day! For more details, call the museum at 456-2600, email info@indianmuseum.org, or visit indianmuseum.org.
