Virtual Field Trip: Native American Stories

Three storytellers shared unique insights from their experiences as Native Americans in the  National Geographic Virtual Field Trip : Native American Stories . We traveled to New Mexico where a dedicated conservationist reinvents maps through the Zuni Map Art Project. Then, we visited the Flathead Reservation in Montana where a photographer challenges stereotypes through journalism. And finally, we took a quick trip to Ontario where a 20-year-old artist examines what it means to be Indigenous in a colonialist world.

The program is now available on our YouTube channel and features:

  • Jim Enote : Jim is a National Geographic Explorer, artist, farmer, and member of the Zuni tribe in New Mexico. For over 20 years, he has tackled land and water conservation issues around the world, and he is committed to conserving and protecting native cultures. He is the director of the Colorado Plateau Foundation and the former director of the A:shiwi A:wan museum in Zuni, New Mexico. He is also the creator of the Zuni Map Art Project, which displays connections between stories, places, and identity in the Zuni culture.
  • Tailyr Irvine : Tailyr is a National Geographic Explorer and member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation in Montana. As a photographer, Tailyr covers stories about Indigenous peoples in North America. Her current project, “Reservation Mathematics: Navigating Love in Native America,” examines “blood quantum,” a controversial practice that determines eligibility for tribal membership based on their percentage of tribal blood.
  • Tehatsistahawi “Tsista” Kennedy : Tsista is a National Geographic Photo Camp alumnus and member of the #GenGeo community. He belongs to the Anishinaabe and Onyota’a:ká nations. He is an artist who calls attention to issues facing Indigenous people.

13 thoughts on “ Virtual Field Trip: Native American Stories ”

I think it would be nice if every year you do a different demographic of certain Native American tribes. There are so many throughout this country that each tribe deserves to be spotlighted and shared!

Thank you for sharing this virtual field trip! It is so important to honor and study the experiences of Native Americans, while recognizing how diverse these experiences are. This field trip offers unique views into three different cultures and how contemporary indigenous artists are sharing their peoples’ stories through art. Jim Enote’s reminder that “north doesn’t always need to be up” is particularly powerful.

These “virtual field trips” are very cool. When school districts don’t have the time or money to go on in-person field trips, or places are simply out of reach and inaccessible to most people, this is an excellent alternative. I firmly believe that visuals are one of the most powerful educational tools around, and something like this really allows one to immerse oneself in another place surrounded by another culture, really experiencing what that is like in a way most people otherwise wouldn’t be able to. Very interesting concept.

Thank You so much for this. It is wonderful to recognize and appreciate Native American culture and their stories!

I, too, would like a virtual field trip for first graders. It would also be great to have the Lakota/Nakota/Dakota highlighted in a virtual field trip. Thank you for all your great programming.

I am looking for this on the youtube channel- Has it posted?

I enjoy learning about Native Americans, their philosophy and their struggles. Can you tell me how many tribes were warrior tribes against other tribes? Were any of the tribes content within their own region or area, or was there always conflict between tribes?

I hope one time you would be able to have one suitable for my first graders. Thanks!!

Thank you for your feedback! We’ve passed it along to our colleagues.

I am Bhuvana from India and would like to register for my daughter who is 11 years old. Don’t think it allows registration ms from any other country apart from the US. Kindly clarify and help me with registration from India. Thanks.

We welcome international participation. If the time difference is a barrier, you are also welcome to view the event in the following days on our NatGeoEducation YouTube channel.

This sounds awesome for my class but they are at lunch and recess from 12:50-1:45. Is there a way to register for it and watch it after the fact? Or is it only live?

Great question, Liz! All of our Virtual Field Trips are available to view at any time after the event. We will post a link to our YouTube Channel on the following day. We invite you and your students to join us at a time that works best for you!

Native American Voices Gallery Tour

Take a closer look at the Penn Museum’s North American collections and learn about Native American communities past and present. The tour covers six themes, from the enduring presence of local Native peoples to some of the oldest stone tools ever recovered in North America. Find out more about sacred places for Native peoples and their efforts to protect them, legislation that strives to ensure Native sovereignty and the return of cultural objects, how Native communities celebrate their cultural identities through practices such as lacrosse and powwows, and contemporary Native artists.

Native American Voices Gallery Tour Introduction

The Penn Museum’s North American collection has over 160,000 objects representing numerous Native American and First Nations Canadian communities past and present. These objects span thousands of years of history, from the late Paleolithic Ice Age to contemporary art installations, illustrating the long-standing presence of Native peoples in North America.

Local Nations: The Creation of Turtle Island

The Delaware Valley is the ancestral home of the Lenape people. While the colonization of North American by Europeans forced many Lenape communities west, several remained and still live in the area today. One way we can learn more about the Lenape people and their enduring cultural identities is through their creation story, which tells of Turtle Island.

Peopling the Past: The Clovis Points of Blackwater Draw

One way archaeologists have learned about the deep history and long presence of Native peoples in North America is through the study of stone tool artifacts, such as the Clovis points recovered from Blackwater Draw, New Mexico. Learning about the process of making stone tools can give us some insight into the everyday lifeways of past Native peoples.

Continuing Celebrations: Lacrosse and Powwows

Native communities continue to practice and celebrate long-held traditions that strengthen and renew their cultural identities. The game of lacrosse and powwow celebrations are two important examples of how Native peoples connect to their past and celebrate their heritage today.

Sacred Places: Mounds, Mountains, and Materiality

Sacred places, such as built earthen mounds or natural landscapes, hold great and enduring meaning for many Native Americans. While many Native communities have lost access to these places and their ancestral lands, they continue to organize and fight for the right to access and protect their sacred places today.

New Initiatives: The Implementation of NAGPRA

NAGPRA provides a legal mechanism for the 574 federally recognized tribes of the U.S., Alaskan Native Villages, and Native Hawaiian organizations to make claims for human remains, associated funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony held by American museums and agencies that receive federal funding.

Contemporary Native American Art

Contemporary Native American artworks are forceful expressions of Native identity and perseverance. They challenge stereotypes of extinction and address issues that are important to Native Americans today.

Native American Communities and their Cultural Traditions have been a part of the North American landscape for thousands of years. From the far north in Alaska to the southeastern shores of Florida, indigenous tribal Homelands covered the continent prior to European colonialism.

 The Homelands contained sophisticated societies with complex technologies and belief systems that enabled them to live successfully in their diverse physical environments. When Europeans appeared on First Nations’ lands bearing trade items of iron, glass and other materials foreign to indigenous cultures, tribal members incorporated the new items into their traditional economies to increase their efficiency and enhance their standard of living. 

 Many of these ancient Native American communities have continued to this day. These contemporary indigenous societies experienced many changes since their first meeting with Euro-Americans. All cultures are organic entities, and change is a constant within them. For example, Anglo-Americans no longer wear Pilgrim hats, drive Model T Fords, or dance the Charleston.

  Modern indigenous tribal communities continue to honor their histories and ancestral leaders and practice their social traditions, while participating in the greater American society as citizens, which they were granted in 1924. Contemporary Native American artists mirror the cultural integrations and transformations occurring within their respective societies. Traditional crafts and artwork often incorporate contemporary themes and images into their time-honored constructs.

 This exhibit bridges the past and the present through presentation of artifacts, images, and themes that demonstrate the connections and continuity of early colonial and modern tribal lifestyles across North America.

I is for Indian

image of art from exhibit, water with wildlife and human figure

Exhibit Opens June 2023

“I is For Indian: Native American Identity Stolen, Sold, & Reclaimed” presents visual and ideological representations of Native American peoples throughout the past century and explores the effects of such stereotypes. Images, artifacts, and harmful tropes on display demonstrate just how pervasive they have been in American popular culture. “I is for Indian” allows visitors to reflect on this difficult history and ultimately proposes an alternative narrative of Native American self-expression and identity.


Discovery room.

The Children’s Discovery Room is an exhibit designed specifically for kids. An interactive space, the Discovery Room provides a fun and stimulating learning experience, showing visitors what life would have been like for them had they been a Native American living in the Woodlands 600 years ago.

Adelphena Logan Education Room

virtual field trip native american museum

The Adelphena Logan Education Room is an indoor re-creation of an Algonkian Sachem’s or Chief’s house.  This “elongated wigwam,” contains both original and replicated artifacts, as well as a detailed mural depicting everyday life in a Northeastern village before the arrival of Europeans. This exhibit allows visitors to experience the everyday challenges and joys of Native American life.

Adelphena “Del” Logan was a guiding light and spirit who nurtured IAIS from the beginning, through building construction and the early years of operation. Del often taught at IAIS and whenever IAIS needed her expert wisdom and support, she was always present both in person and in spirit. Del passed over on July 31, 1978 and the Sachem’s house education room is dedicated in her memory. Inside are many of the precious objects which were her or her family’s personal possessions she donated to IAIS as well as items she made specifically for IAIS, to be used in teaching visitors about Native American culture and ways of life, carrying on her legacy.

Nature Trails

virtual field trip native american museum

IAIS has several leisurely nature trails winding through our 15 acre property, all leading to the replicated Algonkian village. Each trail features plant and tree identification signs, revealing traditional Native American uses for their natural world.

Healing Plants Garden

virtual field trip native american museum

For generations, Native Americans of the Eastern Woodlands gathered wild plants; leaves; roots; flowers; and fruits, not only for food, but for medicine as well. Many modern pharmaceuticals are based upon the same ingredients found in herbs and plants that have been used by Native Americans for centuries. Our Healing Plants Garden contains many of the plants traditionally gathered in the wild by Native Northeastern peoples and features descriptions of the different uses thereof.

Indiana State Museum Virtual Tour

The Indiana State Museum houses exhibits on the science, art, culture, and history of Indiana from prehistoric times up to the present day.

The original collection started in 1862, during the Civil War, when the State Librarian began collecting minerals and other curiosities. In 1869, a state geologist was assigned the task of organizing the collection.

The collection quickly developed when hundreds of cultural items, many relating to the Civil War, were added. A new facility was finally opened in 2002 on the Indiana Central Canal in White River State Park.

Today the museum has over 500,000 artifacts that cover the history of the natural world, Native Americans, the cultural history of Indiana.

The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites is a statewide institution with 11 historic sites spanning the state.

The historic sites include Angel Mounds, an archaeological site with surviving major earthwork mounds built by the Mississippian culture about 1000 CE.

National Museum Of The American Indian Virtual Tour

Virtual Museum Tours: 12 of the best options  #LearnEverywhere

The National Museum of the American Indian is a museum focused on the culture of the indigenous peoples of the Americas.

The museum has three facilities:

  • The National Museum of the American Indian on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
  • The George Gustav Heye Center is located at the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House in New York City.
  • The Cultural Resources Center, a research and collections facility, is located in Suitland, Maryland.

The foundations for the collections were first assembled in the former Museum of the American Indian in New York City, which was established in 1916. It became part of the Smithsonian in 1989.

National Mall, Washington, D.C. Branch

The Washington site is the first national museum dedicated exclusively to Native Americans. The curvilinear building is clad in a golden-colored Kasota limestone designed to evoke natural rock formations shaped by wind and water over thousands of years.

Simulated wetlands surround the museum. The museums east-facing entrance, its prism window, and its space for contemporary Native performances are the result of consultations with Native peoples.

Native Americans have designed the operation of the museum aiming to create a unique atmosphere and experience.

A theme of organic flow is reflected in the museum, with walls mostly of curving surfaces, with almost no sharp corners.

Ute Chief Ouray’s Artifact Case

The mug in this display case of some of Chief Ouray’s artifacts was given to Ouray by United States President U. S. Grant .The mug is made of silver. It has a handle and has a capital “O” engraved on the side. Later, Ouray presented this mug to J. E. Gardner whose son Frank donated the object to the Colorado Historical Society in 1937. Another interesting object in this display case is the knife that belonged to Chief Ouray. The knife has a bone handle and steel blade. It is decorated with brass circles. Gordon Kimball, of Ouray, Colorado, later owned the knife. At his death, William Rathmell became the owner and his son Henry donated it to the Colorado Historical Society in 1958.

Who Are The Utes

The Ute Name: “Known to other groups by many names, the Utes referred to themselves as Nuche, “the people.” In the southwestern part of their homeland, the Utes were called “Deer Hunting Men” by the Zuni and the “Mountain People” by other Pueblo communities. Out on the plains to the east, they were known as the “Black People” to the Cheyenne because of their dark skin color, and as the “Rabbit Skin Robes” to the Omaha and Ponca peoples. The name by which we now know them came from the Spanish terms Yutas, Uticas or Utacus.”

“The Utes are the longest continuous residents of Colorado. While it is not known exactly when the first of their people came from the north and west, they had lived in their mountain and plateau homeland for centuries by the time the Spanish arrived in the 1500’s. Their original territory stretched across portions of the Colorado Plateau, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. In 1800, just before the influx of Euro American traders, miners and settlers, the Utes occupied an estimated 140,000 square miles of territory. Their nomadic existence was based on hunting large and small game and gathering the grasses, roots, berries and fruits native to the area.”

Richard Diebenkorn At The Cantor

“All paintings start out of a mood, out of a relationship with things or people, out of a complete visual impression. To call this expression abstract seems to me often to confuse the issue. Abstract means literally to draw from or separate. In this sense every artist is abstract… a realistic or non-objective approach makes no difference. The result is what counts.”Richard Diebenkorn

This virtual tour explores the ongoing exhibition Richard Diebenkorn at the Cantor , an intimate and interactive installation that presents works by famed Bay Area artist and Stanford alumnus Richard Diebenkorn, 49.

First an art student and later an artist-in-residence at Stanford, Diebenkorn always carried a sketchbook, often capturing what he saw before him, including landscapes and gures, mostly in graphite, and black and white.

The paintings and sketchbooks featured shed new light on the artists process, including his shift in style from guration to abstraction. Included in this virtual tour are Ocean Park #94 , part of Diebenkorn’s expansive Ocean Park Series Window , Disintegrating Pig and BuildingsHill Background .

Arboretum And Activity Area

Our Arboretum area is based on unique resources from Charles Bud Thompson. As a young man, Bud worked at Arnold Arboretum in Boston, Massachusetts.

Ute Weapons And Tools

In the top right hand corner of the display case is a Ute rifle casing. It is made of buckskin with buckskin fringe and includes a variety of beads and wool cloth. The donor’s father, Allen Haskill, got the casing from an Indian believed to be Ute. Haskell was a gate keeper on a toll road between Ridgway and Placerville, Colorado. The Indian sold this casing to Haskill to pay the toll and for pocket money. In the bottom right hand corner of the display case is a knife and knife sheath. The knife has a wooden handle and the blade was made from sheep shears in about 1893 . The knife sheath is made of rawhide and is beaded on one side. This item is on permanent loan to the Ute Indian Museum.

On the left side of the display case you can see several items important to the Utes.

Quiver and Bowcase – The bow case is made of buckskin and sewn with buckskin thongs. The quiver is also made of buckskin and is fringed and painted with several colors.

Bow and Arrows – The bow is made of wood and is backed by sinew to give the bow more strength. The bowstring is also made of sinew and is about three and a half feet long. The arrows are also wood and the iron point and feathers are attached to the wood with sinew.

“Skull Cracker” – The skull cracker has a wooden shaft, a large stone at one end, and a horsehair tail at the other end. Because the decoration is rather simple, it is believed that the club could have been made before 1800.
