Haudenosaunee School Days

Haudenosaunee School Days

Immerse your students in the vibrant art and culture of today's Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). Celebrate Haudenosaunee culture—past and present.

Meet local Haudenosaunee artisans who:

  • do quill work
  • make jewelry
  • do basket weaving
  • make corn husk dolls.

Listen to a traditional storyteller.

Join RMSC Docent educators in the museum's world-renowned Native American exhibits. Get up-close with collections staff and volunteers to view artifacts rarely on display for the public, including art from the Works Progress administration (WPA) Indian Arts Project.

This program is sponsored by the New York State Council of the Arts (NYSCA).
