Get ready for the new autumn season by visiting the State Indian Museum 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, enjoy hands-on arts & crafts, watch traditional acorn processing demonstrations, learn to carve soapstone, actively listen to "Reading Rug" storytelling and more! Additionally, basketry, beadwork, clothing, and exhibits about the ongoing traditions of various California Indian groups will be on display at the Museum.
