Are you a Native artist, storyteller, or community leader looking to get involved in the community? The Teejop and Beyond program at Madison Public Library gives Native locals a platform to present a program during a celebration of Native nations.
Programs will kick off on Indigenous People’s Day to celebrate people in and beyond Teejop — pronounced Day-JOPE, meaning “Four Lakes” or “Madison” — and their traditions, stories, and community connections.
Want to apply but need some inspiration? Here are a few programs that were presented in past years:
- Family history writing workshop
- Milkweed soup cooking demo and sampling celebration
- Multigenerational basket making workshop
Selected presenters will receive $150 per program, plus supplies reimbursement.
Submit your application by Sunday, July 30.
