America's native peoples have used storytelling to remember their history and pass it down through the generations.  However, in a world full of modern technological commnication devices we very rarely sit face to face and share the special stories that make our families' heritages unique!  Junior Rangers and their families are invited to come together for this history saving program in which they will record for present and future generations some of the stories that have made their families special.  Leave with your family's own personalized Face to Face -Book.  Don't forget to bring grandma, grandpa or others with family stories.  Reservations are required and can be made up to one month in advance.
