Would you have what it takes to thrive in the New England winters without twenty-first century technology? Perhaps you’ve wondered how Native Americans were able to start a fire in the snow, find food, or make shelter. This year, there will be a special focus on the basics of trapping. Native people would have needed to locate and hunt various types of animals for food, clothing, and to make tools. Join IAIS Museum Educator and Wigwam Escape Creative Director Griffin Kalin for an interactive and informative outdoor program, appropriate for all ages. Please note that this event is for educational purposes and no animals will be harmed during this program.
