Red Earth Educational Programming

"What is this rattle made of?" "What's a parfleche?" These are some of the questions you can hear shooting through the Red Earth Museum as students explore the exhibits.

Through unique exhibitions focusing on the Native American way of life, Red Earth reaches more than 300,000 visitors annually. Our extensive collection of American Indian artifacts, combined with our ever-changing museum exhibitions, provide children with an incomparable experience they will remember for years to come. 

The Red Earth Museum exhibits are open to learners of all ages, with hands-on exhibits designed especially with children in mind. With advance scheduling, Red Earth staff will provide special tours for school groups and home school students, as well as assist students and adults in utilizing the resources of our research library. 

Red Earth schedules educational activities throughout the year. The museum is pleased to host arts demonstration and cultural activities throughout the year. Storytellers, basket weavers, and others utilize traditional Indian methods and arts to engage all ages in exploring historic and contemporary Native America.
