Bedford Free Public Library: Native American Artifacts & Birds of Prey – Ages 8+

August 14, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Monday, August 14
6:30-7:30 pm

Join us for an informative and educational program featuring live birds of prey along with authentic, museum quality artifacts. Learn how different Native American cultures created objects of beauty and drama using natural materials. Crafts displayed at this program range from shields and headdresses to clothing and jewelry. Beadwork, quillwork and basketry are showcased as well.

Please note – Wingmasters states this show is for ages 8+ ONLY. 

To invoke the spirit of these powerful predators, Native peoples followed the ancient tradition of wearing or carrying bird of prey feathers. They also admired the subtle beauty of raptor feathers, from the black-and-white tail feathers of juvenile golden eagles to the wing feathers of hawks and falcons, patterned with arrowhead-shaped markings.

No registration necessary.
