Join the Museum of the Albemarle on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2023, from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. for a Celebration of Regional Tribes. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with members of regional tribes, who will share their cultural traditions and ties to the land. The museum will have a Take-It-Make-It packet with educational information on regional tribes and activities. The Gypsy Shack will be face painting between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. special symbols that relate to nature, the earth, and animals. Tribes may have their own rituals but a common link between nearly all was the relationship to nature, the earth, and animals, and the feeling that the materials from nature used to make the paint gave meaning to the person receiving the special symbols.
For more information concerning the event call 252-335-1453.
