Through English explorer John White's watercolors, artifacts, and tactile discovery, the American Indian exhibit on view in the E. Wilson & Barbara M. Watts Education Gallery brings to life the people and communities who once lived in and around the Roanoke Valley. Museum goers will learn about how American Indians lived- where they slept, what they ate, what they wore, and how they survived. Educational activities related to the exhibit include: A Crossroads Scavenger Hunt, grinding corn, a music station, animal track identification, and a touch-and-feel fur station. Children can also make their own rain sticks, 'turtle shell' rattles, antler headdresses, and bead necklaces, all of which are prepackaged so they can be done either in the museum or at home. This exhibit will run until November 2016.
