Horniman Museum and Gardens’ North America: First Peoples Workshop
Compare and contrast life for first North Americans from two different geographic regions: the Pacific North West Coast and the Great Plains.
Discover how the climate and resources of each region shaped life for two different tribes, the Haida (Pacific North West Coast) and Lakota (Great Plains). Handle objects from each region including a totem pole and beaded moccasins and share your findings with your classmates.
The Horniman’s World Gallery is the perfect place to explore your topic, with stunning displays of North American objects made by native groups from the Great Plains, North West Coast and the Arctic. The Horniman Gardens are home to a stunning 20-foot high totem pole carved by Tlingit artist Nathan Jackson, one of only a small number in the UK. Also, on display near the Museum’s main entrance, you can see a beautiful Navajo sand painting.
