The Museum of Indian Culture in Allentown, Pennsylvania, would like to
invite all homeschool families to participate in our first annual Native
American Heritage Day, a fun and educational day of Native American craft
workshops and life-ways demonstrations for children of all ages and
accompanying parents.

Participating children and their parents will interact with Native American
culture in hands-on workshops that will teach primitive pottery making,
quillwork and medicine wheel wrapping, Ojibwa-style dreamcatchers,
Iroquois-style cornhusk dolls, nature walks and scavenger hunts, bow and
arrow/atlatl (spear thrower), American Indian Frybread, and cattail mat
weaving. Children will also learn through life-ways exhibits like artifact
displays, flint knapping, Native American corncob dart games, and a
cultural heritage display. Lunchtime activities will include a storytelling
theater, screening of a short film called ”Native Americans Today,” and a
visit to the Museum of Indian Culture’s Trading Post.

Pre-registration is required by May 11, 2012. Registration fee is $20 per
child with one accompanying adult. Only 150 spaces are available. Sign-in
time will be from 9 AM to 9:45 AM and activities will begin promptly at 10
AM. Children must bring their own bagged lunch, wear sturdy shoes, and be
accompanied by one adult. Special rates are available for larger families.
