Agate Fossil Beds present “A Unique Friendship During Turbulent Times”
Park Ranger Beth Nunn will present her program “A Unique Friendship During Turbulent Times” on Saturday, August 6, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. in the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is located at 301 River Rd. Harrison, NE.
During a turbulent time in American History when the Native American people were fighting to keep their land and the American Government was taking it, an unlikely friendship began between James Cook and Lakota Chief Red Cloud. This friendship brought about a beautiful Native American artifact collection that marks many historical events. Join Ranger Beth as she talks about how this friendship came about, and how it shares the history and culture of the Plains Indians. This program is free and appropriate for visitors of all ages.
