The Kansas Children's Discovery Center is pleased to host a traveling exhibit from the Boston Children's Museum!
Opening to the public on October 10th, Native Voices, New England Tribal Families is an introduction to native communities around New England today. By visiting five different communities from northern to southern New England, museum visitors learn a lot about Native American traditions and how modern families balance contemporary life with preservation of important cultural identities.
Created by Boston Children’s Museum (BCM) and sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and Ocean Spray, this exhibit represents a unique collaboration between native advisors and the Museum’s exhibit design team. It builds on 60 years of collaboration between the Museum and native tribes in New England. The hands-on activities, compelling immersive environments, and evocative artifacts, both old and new provide a great way to learn about how all cultures preserve important values and hand them down from one generation to the next.
