Using the intricate dioramas in our 2nd floor Native Peoples of the Americas gallery, take a closer look at the Algonquin, Apache, Haida, Pueblo, Inuit, Haudenosaunee, and Plains cultures. Compare and contrast the past material culture of these various groups of Native Americans living across North America. How are the religious, social, political, economic, technological, and artistic aspects of these communities affected by geography? Hands-on artifacts and natural materials from the Teaching Collection aid in the exploration of geographic and environmental diversity and the roles they played in family and community life across cultures.
