Kids' program on Native American shelters to be held at Loutit District Library

GRAND HAVEN, Michigan -- Ever wondered what it would be like to step into time machine and travel back in time to visit Grand Rapids 500 years ago? What would people's homes look like? How would they build them? What tools and resources would they use?

The Loutit District Library present local historian Kevin Finney who will help answer these questions and more with his presentation titled  “Bark Houses and Cattail Mats; Adventures in Building Native American Shelters” on Saturday, November 13 at 10:00 a.m.

Finney’s hour-long program ventures into studying clues and building ancient shelters. He will bring stone tools, natural materials and other clues that he has pieced together to understand ancient building processes.

This free program will be held in the library’s Youth Program Room. Visit www.loutitlibrary.org or call 616-842-5560, ext. 216 for more information.
