Education Outreach

In-Classroom Program

Bring the Maidu Museum into your classroom with this hands-on program. Your students will compare different tribal communities from up and down California. Discover how these cultures reflected their relationships with the diverse environments in which they live. 

Games Add-on (30 min): Add on an extra 30 minutes to your Outreach Program to include two games: the Trade Game and the Stave Game. During the Trade Game, students become traders for their community and learn about about what it takes to make the best trades. The Stave Game is a traditional California Indian game that is played throughout the state.
