Kim talks about the tribes that once inhabited Illinois, and includes a history of the Trail of Tears as it pertains to our state. She’ll discuss the Native traditions and culture of the tribes that once lived in Illinois in the early 1800’s before the Indian Removal Act moved them west.

Topics such as Native gardening, harvest, and music will be included in the discussion, and Kim will sing and drum during the presentation.

A question-and-answer period will follow.
