Make a Tipi
Nomadic Plains Indians followed their food sources and had to pack up and move quickly. Portable shelter, like tipis, made this easier. Make your own miniature version!

March 19

Canvas Art
Create your one-of-a-kind work of art with a canvas and acrylic paints. Paint a bison, landscape, or whatever your heart desires. Hang it on your wall or gift it to someone special.

March 20

Many Plains Indian tribes were nomadic – traveling the Great Plains on horseback and on foot. A common item used for packing was the parfleche bag. Made from rawhide, these durable storage bags protected a variety of items. Create a parfleche bag and use it to store your own items.

Bison Gallery Hunt
Bison were essential to the lives of Plains Indians. Their meat, hide, and bones provided food, shelter, clothing, and other important items. The Museum’s galleries contain many examples of items made from bison as well as artwork celebrating them. This gallery hunt will help you find some of these artifacts and paintings.
