The Elkhart County Historical Museum in Bristol, Indiana, is hosting an event on February 26 to educate young girls about American Indians and their local history in a workshop entitled, "American Girl Doll Day," reports WNDU.com.

Using the popular American Girl Doll brand, "Kaya" will be the featured doll at the event, a Nez Perce American Indian from 1764 who resides in the Pacific Northwest.  The girls will be able to learn about how American Indians like Kaya differ from Indians who lived in what today is Elkhart County.

For more information on this event, including registration, contact the museum's curator, Rebecca Oestreich, at (574) 848-4322.
