The Children’s Room at the Field Library in Peekskill is supporting the Two Row Campaign and our stop in Peekskill. The week of July 29 the library will have materials available for kids to make “friendship bracelets” and we will give them information about “Sharing the River of Life” at 12 noon at River Front Green Park in Peekskill.

The event features Cayuga Chief Sam George from the Six Nations Territory, Mohawk educator Kay Olan and Brooke Hansen professor of Native American Studies and Anthropology at Cornell University and a Two Row organizer in Ithaca. Cayuga artist, musician and Two Row organizer Dan Hill will provide musical accompaniment.

The library will encourage families to take the kids down there on Monday, August 5.   They are also planning their Friday Aug. 2nd storytime around a Native American theme and on Saturday, Aug. 3rd at 11 a.m. will have a special craft for the kids to make.  The craft will have a Native American theme and the kids will each make two items, one that they can keep and one to give away at the event.
