Native American Ceremonies

The Native Americans of our region engaged in many fascinating social activities.  Annual gatherings were held to conduct important ceremonies and renew family ties.  Through the use of actual artifacts and replicas, students will learn how to play a few native games, see some of the instruments that were used for ceremonies and join in a social dance.
