Winter break activities planned


The Institute for American Indian Studies is offering a program at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Dec. 30 outdoors and indoors.

The program is a way for children to learn and have something to do during their winter break from school.

All health protocols will be followed as a result of the coronaviru­s pandemic.

Children will play Native American games like snow snake, (weather permitting), snow boat, hoop and hole, keeper of the fire, and eagle eye.

They will also create a craft that they can take home with them as a momento of the program.

A highlight of the program is the traditiona­l Native American Stories told by the institute's Profession­al Native American Storytelle­r that teaches children about the cultural beliefs of indigenous people living in the United States.

The institute is located at 38 Curtis Road in Washington.


A son, Kamil Jakob Caban-Ramirez, was born Nov. 12, to Kimberly Ramirez, and Cesar Caban, of Danbury.
