Corn husk activity

Native Americans

In this program, students will experience Native American culture in a variety of contexts. Students will spend time in our Native American Hall where they will observe the relationships between Native Americans and the environment as well as learn about living structures for Native Americans across North America. This program uses traditional games and storytelling to teach about cultural traditions from our region and beyond, direct interaction with displays and dioramas in our galleries, and hands-on exploration of instruments and other artifacts. Students will learn craft making with the concept of trading goods through construction of beaded necklaces.
