This year the Heard Museum celebrates Día del Niño – Children’s Day online- with a free virtual event for children and families of all ages!
Stories for Día del Niño: Family Love and Community Strength
Enjoy five storytellers from the South Mountain Community College Storytelling Institute as they share personal and traditional stories for the whole family.
Weaving at Home with Velma Kee Craig (Diné)
Master weaver and Heard Museum Andrew W. Mellon Fellow Velma Craig will teach you how to make and weave on a cardboard loom. You can weave with yarn or any materials you already have around your house such as scraps of material, plastic shopping bags, old t-shirts, newspaper or junk mail.
Musical Performance with Grammy-Nominated Canyon Records Artist Aaron White (Northern Ute / Diné)
Aaron will share guitar and flute music to sing along with, and will tell us about the traditions behind making his stunning wooden flutes.
These programs will be viewable on Facebook, on our YouTube channel and through the Heard’s new web page, Heard@Home (https://heard.org/heardathome).
