She will also be feeding these creatures; so come discover the small native wonders we have around us. 3p.m. – Native American Games – Native Americans who inhabited this area before removal, made decisions here that changed their lives. Have you ever thought about the daily lives of Native Americans and wondered how they spent their free time, back in history, way before this area was a state park? Are you curious about how their hunting skills were perfected? Meet a park interpreter in the grassy area across from the visitor center to learn some of the games Native Americans developed, played, and perfected. All ages welcome! 6 p.m. – Arkansas Traveler – Lake Dardanelle is the site of many unique events in history, and the Arkansas Traveler is one that has molded Arkansas Folklore for years. The painting is thought to have been painted from the banks of this very park.
