Native American Culture Days
November 7 -9, 2013 • 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thurs/Fri; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday
Visitors learn first-hand about Native American regalia, dance and music, and immerse themselves in the rich history of local Native American cultures. Authentic dancing and drumming sessions leave a memorable impression and activities include traditional storytelling, games and crafts including corn husk doll making.
Attendees can also visit the Museum’s exhibition, Anishinabek: The People of this Place. This exhibition highlights the Ottawa, Potawatomi and Chippewa people of West Michigan and provides an understanding of the Native American culture through rare artifacts and video interviews.
Native American Culture Days will have an impressively strong level of appeal to elementary school-age children and families, as well as school groups. This program provides the perfect opportunity for students and teachers to enhance their classroom learning. In addition, with the inclusion of authentic cultural custom demonstrations, the programs provide a higher level of visual curiosity for adult visitors as well.
