Meet Real Live Archaeologists!

The Tribal Archaeology Section is getting geared up to help out with this year’s American Indian Arts Celebration which will be held on the AH-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum Grounds November 5-7th, 2010.  The celebration includes a showcase of traditional and modern Native American arts, dance and music.

We will be featuring some exciting talks on all aspects of archaeology, including a presentation on “Tools of War” by Ryan Hesse. This talk will give you a taste for the upcoming museum exhibit opening in January of 2011. The upcoming exhibit will feature Arms of the Seminole Wars, yet we will give you a run down on the weapons used leading up to this time. We will have demonstrations performed by our “Expert” Flint Knappers Geoffrey Wasson and Nathan Lawres, an Atlatl demonstration/ activity by “Master Hunter” Derek Braun, not to mention some of our Environmental folks talk about the flora and fauna.

Come and meet us at AIAC!

We have plenty of hands on activities for the kiddies such as pottery reconstruction for beginners, experienced and expert levels and our mystery boxes that’ll leave you guessing.

For more information, become our friend on facebook and you will be the first to know about this and many more upcoming events sponsored by the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum.
