We are wrapping up our studies on the American Indian during this Thanksgiving week. We have greatly enjoyed learning more about our ancestors! On Friday, we went to American Indian Heritage Day at the Museum of History. We got to learn more and do lots of fun activities. We even recognized a few Indians from our other field trips. Lots of different tribes came together for this day.
This little guy was my favorite. He was doing the Warrior Dance. Which is a dance that they would normally do after a hunt to tell about their hunt.
This guy is doing a Prairie Chicken Dance which tells about their hunt of a prairie chicken.

We learned more about making clay pots and got to make things with clay.
Ari made a butterfly
They have a Black beard exhibit going on at the museum right now. We stopped by there before leaving the museum. Ryan loves pirates.
What have you learned about the Indians in school?
Ryan: There are good and bad Indians just like there are good and bad people. The people took Squanto and they were bad.
Arianna: I’ll tell you what I remember. The possum story which is how he got his tail. How to hang the tobacco. My favorite was the Indian tribe dance and the waterfalls.
