By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- Traditional African music and story telling by Richard Pitts kicked off festivities at the Kansas Museum of History.

There were demonstration stations where participants young and old learned the fine art of quilting, model airplanes and weaving.

Other hands on stations allowed children to get up close and personal with authentic native American teepees and art.

Pitt says history and storytelling are important to all of us, if it wasn't for the people who came before us we wouldn't have stories to tell.
