Please stop by to pick up your wristband and information packet. Additional patches will be available for sale at the registration table.

Classes and Instructors:
We are in the process of lining up a staff of very knowledgeable instructors. We will have sessions on Traditional, Fancy, Grass, Straight, and Ladies dance and clothing. In addition, there will be sessions on beadwork, quillwork, bustle construction, drumming, OA ceremonies, and much more.

Please share this information with Arrowmen in your lodges that have a genuine interest in Indian craft and culture. Also, please invite all Indian Lore Explorer Posts in your council. Since the Continuing Ed Center can accommodate separate bathroom and sleeping facilities for ladies, we want to invite female family members and members of co-ed Posts also. We will be using the classrooms and gym for sleeping quarters. We look forward to seeing you at the Seminar.
