Games are an integral part of Native community life, connecting communities and teaching cultural values, history and skills. Many games are designed to build strength in both body and spirit through exercise, group cooperation and practicing important skills such as hand-eye coordination. 
In this live and interactive program led by a museum educator, children will learn about the many games played in different areas of the Americas and gain a deeper understanding of the games’ origins and significance. Movement is part of this program.
Recommended for ages 5-10 years old.
