The Mid-America All-Indian offers an exciting hands-on Educational Outreach Program to school and educational groups throughout the city of Wichita and surrounding areas. For groups of 10 or more who are unable to make the trip to our museum and cultural center we are excited to bring our education program to you. Our Education Coordinator will give an interactive lesson using our mobile hands-on collection demonstrate how items transition from their natural state into everyday tools, clothing, musical instruments, and accessories. This program allows students to get a firsthand look and experience into American Indian life through the large variety of items we have in our hands-on collection including: skins, bones, jewelry, games, pottery, instruments, tools, corn grinding, and clothing.
For Upper Level Grades, a 15-30 minute PowerPoint lecture and presentation on the Mid-America All-Indian Center and Museum can be added to this program.
Teachers can also add one or more craft activity for an additional fee per student for each item. Crafts include a medicine wheel bracelet or corn husk doll, craft activity fees vary per item and range between $1.00 and $2.00.
Our Educational Outreach programs are for groups of 10 or more only, and must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance.
