Ancient American Indian Artifacts
This History Explorers program, sponsored by the Swannanoa Valley Museum, will encourage children to be “history detectives” as they use their observation skills to infer the uses of ancient American Indian tools and contemporary crafts made by Cherokee artisans. Children will also learn how to play the butter bean game, a historic Cherokee counting game. The program will even include a blowgun and atlatl demonstration!
Designed for children in K-4th grades, the program takes place on Saturday, October 17, from 10 – 11:00 a.m., in the shaded lot behind the Black Mountain United Methodist Church, at 101 Church Street. The program is free for museum members, and $5 per person (plus taxes and fees) for nonmembers. Museum members can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a promo code to use for free registration. Adults are expected to stay with their children for the duration of the activity.
Attendance will be limited to allow for social distancing, and all adults and children age 11 and over are required to wear masks.
