DEADWOOD – Deadwood History, Inc. will host a Native American Legends Workshop at the Days of '76 Museum on Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The workshop is $6 for museum members and $11 for non-members. The workshop is suggested for students in grades K-6. Call Amanda Brown or Tera Richards at 605-578-1657 for reservations or more information. Reservations are required.

They will hear about the legends of Devil’s Tower, the Dream Catcher, the Great Race, and a story of the Lakota winter count. Activities include designing and creating a winter count that tells each child’s story and making their own dream catcher. Light refreshments will be provided.
