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.
