Acorn Day at the State Indian Museum — October 13!

Don’t miss Acorn Day 2012 this Saturday!

Get ready for the new autumn season by visiting the State Indian Museum on Saturday, October 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during an educational and fun-filled “Acorn Day” that celebrates the acorn, a traditional dietary staple of California Indians. 

Part of the month-long ARTOBER effort that highlights the arts in Sacramento,  guests to the State Indian Museum will enjoy learning about the time-honored tradition of preparing acorn for food and sampling traditional acorn mush and flat breads.  Children can participate in Native games, traditional arts & crafts, and hands-on table activities.

For more information about this event or other activities happening at the State Indian Museum, call 916-324-0971 or visit www.parks.ca.gov/indianmuseum
