The San Bernardino County Museum will present “The Serrano Creation Story: A Native American Perspective” on Saturday, June 26. This daylong program includes the telling of the creation story and a trip to important related sites in the San Bernardino Mountains. The program is designed for adults and youth age 12 and above. The cost of $25 per person ($20 for Museum Association members) includes transportation, lunch, and snacks.

The program starts at the County Museum in Redlands at 9:30 a.m. when James Ramos will retell the Serrano Creation Story. Ramos is director of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians’ Tribal Unity and Cultural Awareness Program. Participants will then board passenger vans and travel to the Big Bear Lake area to visit some of the sites mentioned in the story. The vans will return to the museum by 5:00 p.m.

“This program is a great example of how the people of San Manuel are working to share their stories and their history with their neighbors,” said Jolene Redvale, museum curator of education. “We respect the work of San Manuel’s Tribal Unity and Cultural Awareness Program, and we are honored to have Mr. Ramos providing his insight and a new way of looking at some of the places we know so well.”

This program is supported by a grant from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians as a major sponsor of “Native American Traditions: Hopi Katsinas.” For more information and to request an enrollment form, call Jolene Redvale, museum curator of education, at (909) 307-2669 ext. 256 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
