Space Available at Rattle Workshop
A few spaces are still available for the San Bernardino County
Museum’s Native American Traditions workshop, “Rattles
and Bird Songs,” on Saturday, July 24. At the workshop,
participants will make gourd rattles and learn a “bird song”
traditional to the Serrano and Cahuilla Indians. The cost for
the workshop is $12 per person ($10 for museum association members)
and includes materials, lunch, and museum admission.
“Because this workshop is very participatory, we’re
extending the registration deadline to allow as many people as
can be accommodated to have a chance to join in song,” said
Jolene Redvale, museum curator of education. “It’s
an unusual and exciting opportunity to be involved in traditions
of the local Indian bands, so we have decided to be open for last-minute
registration by telephone: payment will be accepted at the museum
before the start time of the program.”
The workshop, suitable for adults and children 11 years and older
and children age 7 to 10 with the help of an adult, is supported
in part by a grant from the San Manuel Band of Mission. It starts
at 9:30 a.m. and runs through 3:00 p.m. For more information and
to make reservations, call (909) 307-2669 ext. 256 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
