Fourth Grade Students at Coram Elementary School  Journey into American Indian TerritoryOn Monday, November 13 and Tuesday, November 14, students at Coram Elementary School enjoyed an interactive program to experience the history of Indian culture with deep roots on Long Island.

The Journeys into American Indian Territory program is a curriculum-based moving museum explicitly geared for fourth-grade students. The presentation began with an introductory film about how Native Americans lived after the European settlers arrived, and continued with workshops on traditional games and stories, music and dance, and the history of the native peoples of the Eastern Woodlands. 

The students walked through a model longhouse containing genuine furs, baskets, rattles, and other items to see and touch.  There were more than 70 different artifacts in the museum, representing the Iroquois and Algonquian culture for our region.
