Best Field Trip

We went to the Morris Thompson Cultural Center. This center is home to about five different groups in our community and is home to our visitor center. 

We visited with Dixie, a Native Alaskan, who is an artist. She put together a feast for the families: salmon spread (from smoked,canned salmon), moose soup, fry bread and cake. The kids helped make the spread and the soup. 

She told us about Native fish camps, local places where she has helped decorate with Native art. We got a behind the scenes look at where she works. And we got stories. I love the stories.
