Our Native American programs make use of the museumís extensive collection of Native American materials and focus particularly on the Cherokee and Creek nations. Each program is hands-on and interactive:

Students will also get a chance to compare the Native Americans from long ago to the Native Americans of today and learn the concept of keeping traditions.

Students will be given an interactive presentation about the differences in menís and womenís roles in Native American society.
Native Americans of North America (4th -- 8th Grade)
