Kaya, an American Girl, Comes to Eiteljorg Museum

Fans of American Girl dolls are making plans now to get to the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. 28 February.

The star will be Kaya, an American Girl doll with Nez Perce heritage. There'll be storytelling, games and activities inspired by Nez Perce culture.

Kids can:
* Visit the Plateau Gallery and learn about objects used by Kaya’s people.
* Hear a tale performed by Nez Perce storyteller Rosa Yearout, Eiteljorg Museum artist in residence.
* Play traditional games and make a stick dice game to take home.
* Participate in craft activities, like bead drilling.
* Enter for a chance to win one of three Kaya dolls that will be given away throughout the day.
* Discover American Girl books and other fun finds in the Eiteljorg Museum Store.

All activities are free with museum admission.
