Native American Culture Residency Program

Our residence program is a cultural education program can be offered for ½ day or all day, indoors or out,

and offers  children or adults an opportunity to see a variety of artifacts — including baskets, hand drums, rattles, corn husk dolls, weapons, household and “day-to-day” life items, and arrow heads through our Traveling Exhibit.

This is an unforgettable experience for most people.

This residency program may be structured to accommodate any size group.

We bring along many, many artifacts.  Our goal is to immerse our audience with examples of our natural and cultural past. For the most part, we focus on the period between 1750 and the 1800’s. What was it like? How did “they” live?  What would need if you were there - THEN?      We cover tools & accessories, weapons, games, toys, clothing, shelter, foods and skills of the time.

Children love learning about Cherokee toys.  We have stickball, Cherokee marbles, chunkey, cornhusk dolls, handkerchief dolls and more.

We have displays of many weapons and more.  We have displays of many weapons and more.
