Join the National Museum of the American Indian for a hands-on teacher workshop celebrating Indigenous games from the Arctic to Argentina.

Join different Native presenters to learn and play culturally-specific games, then make one Native game to bring back to your classroom!

Teachers will receive Native Knowledge 360° materials such as a classroom lesson on the mahkisina meehkintiink (moccasin game) by the Myaamia (Miami) community in Oklahoma and brainstorm connections to classrooms.

Become inspired by the richness and diversity of Native games in the 3rd level exhibit and learn about the cultural values and teaching styles of Native games to share with your students.

Recommended for Kindergarten through sixth-grade teachers. Classroom materials will be provided.

Whether you teach art, geography, history, social studies, or environmental studies, you are invited to register today. Free to register.
