Navajo Day at the Eiteljorg

Haven't been to the Eiteljorg since a fourth-grade field trip? Maybe this will draw you in. Next Saturday, April 12, is Navajo Day at the museum. Activities include:
  • A Navajo rug trunk show.
  • Demonstrations of Navajo weaving, drum-making, sheep shearing and silver-smithing.
  • A cooking demonstration (Navajo fry bread).
  • Lectures on weaving and Navajo code talkers.
  • A tour of Navajo objects in the galleries.
  • Hands-on activities and several film showings.

Sounds like fun! I tried authentic fry bread on a trip out west last year, and it should be worth the visit to the museum on its own.

I never thought I'd read "trunk show" and Eiteljorg in the same sentence. Who knew?!
