JOIN US FOR SUMMER FUN AT THE FRISCO NATIVE AMERICAN MUSEUM.

ALL CLASSES COST $10/PERSON WITH MUSEUM ADMISSION.

We recommend making reservations ahead of time.

SNAKES, SPIDERS, AND BUGS ……OH MY!

When we talk about how Natives respected animals in nature, the discussion is typically centered around well-loved animals like bear, eagle, buffalo, and wolf. But what about our smaller animal neighbors? Join us as Amber Roth talks about the frequently misunderstood creatures of the often-unseen aspects of our environment. From pollination to pest control and from forest clean up to disease control, learn how our tiniest neighbors can provide some of the biggest benefits. Circumstances permitting, there may also be a chance to meet some of the animal friends we discuss!  Participants will receive seeds to support important native pollinators and stickers designed by Amber herself! Class begins at 2pm on the following days: July 5th, August 2nd.

DRUMMING – THE EARTH’S HEARTBEAT.

Join Gray Michael Parsons (GrayHawk) who will be talking about his heritage and sharing some of his original songs. He will be teaching you about the importance of music and the drum to Native people. You will even get your own drumstick! If you go to a pow wow you will hear people say “the drum is the heartbeat of the earth”.  Class begins at 2pm on the following days:  June 14TH, July 12TH, August 9th.
