Don’t miss this year’s summer programs!
June 9 – August 25, 2017
Last year, we held weekly programs on Talking Sticks and Tattoo’s that were a hit with adults and children alike.
This year, we’ve improved our programs and have a beautifully updated room for our classes! Our programs are appropriate for all ages and are included in museum admission. We hope that you will join us on Fridays for:
2:00 pm Fridays
From a very early age, Native American children are taught to listen and respect another’s point of view. Many native tribes use Talking Sticks as a creative and effective way for both children and adults to extend their listening skills and conduct meaningful conversations that are orderly and fair – even with adversaries. Make your own Talking Stick and learn how to use it.
3:00 pm Fridays
Hatteras Island Original Inhabitants: Croatoans
Archaeological evidence demonstrates that Hatteras Island was an ancient home for early people. Originally known as Croatoan, it is the site of the first recorded contact between the English and Native people in July 1584 and the place where the oldest English artifacts in North America have been uncovered. Learn about village life among the people John White met, see a long house under construction, and try your hand at scraping the inside of a dugout canoe.
