Museum of Indian Culture

The Museum of Indian Culture provides a portal to the cultural history of the Lenape and other American Indian tribes. This history gains form and texture in the Northeast Woodland Room, where handmade basketry, beadwork, and pottery rest on display. Nearby, the Inter-Tribal Room demonstrates the breadth of cultures in the area. Its exhibits include a Lakota morning-star quilt, a Cheyenne sash, and Navajo sand art. For a more hands-on lesson, patrons can see how indigenous people made fire from a bow drill, practice using a dart thrower, or hear stories that were originally told by tribal elders.

In addition to its exhibits, the museum conducts regular educational events. During Saturdays at the Museum, guests can step into American Indian culture by practicing their hunting and gathering skills in the field, going on an insect safari, or learning about societies that existed before Columbus discovered the continent and named it after Amerigo Vespucci. The Museum also sponsors the Roasting Ears of Corn Festival—with flint knapping, tomahawk throwing, and artifact displays—and the Three Sisters Harvest, which donates food and other supplies to American Indian families in need.
