About This Event

Playing games is an important tradition shared by all ages in numerous Native communities. Many games are designed to build strength in both body and spirit through exercise, group cooperation, and practicing important skills such as hand-eye coordination. Games are an integral part of Native community life, they connect communities and teach cultural values, history, and skills. In this live and interactive program led by a museum educator, children will learn about the many games played in different areas of the Americas and gain a deeper understanding of the games’ origins and significance. Movement is part of this program. Recommended for ages 5-10 years old. Photo credit: Children learn how to play the Hawaiian board game kōnane during the Hawaiian Festival.
