Valley Kids Learn About Native American History

The Native American Museum at Dobbs Park hosted a So You Think You Can Dance event Saturday afternoon. Kids got a chance to see some of the culture, and even get in on the fun. And they didn't leave empty- handed. Participants also got to make charms and crafts to learn more about the Native Americans from the Valley.
Valley kids got a helping of history Saturday morning, as they stepped back in time to learn about those who came before us.

Those involved say it's a great way to get kids excited about history.

"It's part of our country's heritage. The native people obviously were the first people who live here and we can thank them for many thing that they have given us. It's going to remember them and also to remember the fact that they are still very much well and alive today too," said museum curator Jane Creedon.

The Native American Museum will be hosting a flute circle next Saturday afternoon.
   
The facility is open every Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
