The Corning Museum of Glass
Introduce little ones to the Museum through FREE storytelling, puppet shows, music, and lots of fun!
Dressed in full regalia, with flute, song, dance, story, and sign language, Robin Pease of Kulture Kids performs the story of a Hidatsa Native American woman who was given a special blue glass beaded belt…and then lost it.
Audiences participate in the telling of this story, which uncovers the important role of glass beads and other items as trade goods between Native Americans and early-American explorers. This customized performance is presented through a special arrangement with Young Audiences of Rochester by Kulture Kids’ Robin Pease, an Ohio-based Native American storyteller of Mohawk descent.
Collection Connection: Look for beads and blue glass in the collection.
