Goodwell’s No Man’s Land Museum will host the Fall Traditional Artist Demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday, September 10 & 11. Beginning at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, demonstrations will include drum making, flint knapping, and basket making.

Two classes will be offered in basket making, one for a basket about 8-10” wide and another to make a basket about the size of an apple. For a $35 fee, participants will make their own large basket with supplies and lunch included. The class will meet from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the museum. A two-hour class beginning at 1:00 p.m. will be offered for a $15 fee in which students may make a smaller basket. Class size is limited, so please call the museum to reserve your spot by 3:00 pm Wednesday, September 7. Fees for basket making must be paid in advance.

On Sunday, Ivan Hankla, dressed in historical costume, will give a Native American historical program performance outside on the museum lawn at 2 pm. Traditional tipis will also be on display. These activities are in conjunction with the Oklahoma Panhandle State University homecoming celebration and are paid for through a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council. For more information, contact No Man’s Land Museum at 580/349-2670 or via email at nmlhs@ptsi.net.
