The Elkhart County Historical Museum will be educating young girls about Native Americans and their local history during the upcoming workshop, American Girl Doll Day.

The program will use the popular American Girl doll brand to teach girls about how American Indians lived.

Kaya will be the featured doll at the event. She's a Nez Perce American Indian from 1764, who lives in the Pacific Northwest. Girls will have the opportunity to learn now American Indians like Kaya are different from Native Americans who lived in, what is now, Elkhart County.

The event will be held February 26. There will be a morning session from 10 to noon and an afternoon session from 1:30 to 3:30. Advanced registration is required. The cost to attend the workshop is $4 per girl. Girls may bring their own dolls if they have one, but are not required to do so.

Door prizes will be given out at the event, including a grand prize of a Kaya doll. To register, contact the curator of the museum, Rebecca Oestreich, at (574) 848-4322.
