NATCHEZ — A variety of indoor events are being hosted today and this weekend to keep Miss-Lou residents out of the cold and wet weather forecast for a majority of the weekend.

Showers are expected Saturday and Sunday.

Friday forum

This week’s topic includes representatives from Adams County discussing Adams County government.

The weekly forum begins at 8 a.m. at Natchez Coffee Company.

Grand Village storytelling

The Grand Village of the Natchez Indians will host the 29th annual Eleventh Moon Storytelling from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the museum auditorium.

The event is recommended for ages 7 and up, and light refreshments will be served.

Eleventh Moon, for which the event is named, is based on the Natchez Indians’ calendar. The Natchez Indians would tell their tales during harsh winter months when they had more spare time.

The event this year will feature regional storytellers, such as Sam Jones, Marianne Raley, Joan McLemore and the Natchez Little Theatre players, as well as students from the Copiah-Lincoln Community College drama class.

All of the stories told are based on Native American or nature tales.

Morgantown Middle School students will also display masks made in their art class.

For more information about the event, call 601-446-6502.

The event is free and open to the public.

The Grand Village is located at 400 Jefferson Davis Blvd.
