The 2017 Gathering – Bringing History Home
The schedule and registration is now available for The 2017 Gathering – Bringing History Home, to be held Wednesday – Friday, September 6 – 8 at the Bearskin Gym.
REGISTRATION FOR T-SHIRT AND ART CLASSES WILL CLOSE
FRIDAY, AUGUST 25 AT 9:00 PM.
You won’t want to miss out this year. Activities include: visit the Johnson and Wyandotte Cemeteries, a “Remembrance Walk”, learn about Wampum Belts and how to safeguard your past with new tools for preserving your Wyandot Heritage. On Friday a very special announcement and presentation will be made that you don’t want to miss.
We will offer four different Art classes this year on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Each person attending will need to select their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice class. You will be placed in your 1st and 2nd choice class till the class is full. You would then be placed in your 3rd choice class.
Lunch will be provided at Title 6, and dinner will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday evenings with social time after. On Wednesday we will have show and tell after dinner, so bring something to share. Come and share a story from your family’s past of how they celebrated their Wyandotte heritage, or maybe you have stories from family, of their time in Ohio to Kansas to Oklahoma. If you have any old pictures, artifacts or memorabilia from Wyandotte past, please bring to show and tell. It should be a fantastic evening.
