History is like Frankenstein's monster; all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a one-year membership to the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center (a $25 value), located in Santa Rosa.
Through the multimedia resources and informative exhibits that earned executive director Nicole Myers-Lim a 2010 Native American 40 Under 40 award, the California Indian Museum educates visitors on the diverse history and culture. Museum members can bring a guest or their children free of charge to explore various topics of California Indian history, such as the Gold Rush, native languages, military history, and anthropology. The museum's principal exhibit, Ishi: A Story of Dignity, Hope and Courage, uses cultural artifacts to tell the story of the Indian who was studied for five years by the anthropologists at the University of California. Members of the museum will also receive the educational bi-annual newsletter and timely notifications about The Tillie Hardwick Lecture Series, which features a collection of hands-on basket making, dancing and music making, and storytelling while highlighting the history of the landmark Tillie Hardwick v. United States case.
