Those who came to the Toddler Storytime and the Preschool Storytime at the Sequim Branch Library enjoyed hearing the music of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and learning some traditional stories. This is the second year that Youth Librarian Antonia Krupicka-Smith has partnered with the tribe to celebrate National Native American History Month. All the children enjoyed the traditional Welcome Song of the Tribe. Tribal Librarian Siri Hiltz then introduced Orca the Whale to the children and told stories using a story pole. The children got the chance to make their own story stick puppets of traditional tribal figures. Find out more about the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Library here: http://library.jamestowntribe.org/. The Sequim Branch sends out a big Thank You! to the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe drummers and singers and Tribal Librarian Siri Hiltz for another great program!
The drummers from left to right are Janis King, Melissa Smith, Carmen Maxwell, Sally Fairbanks, and Jeremy Monson.
