Since you can’t come to the Institute for Native American Studies, so the Institute is bringing the Museum to you, virtually! Although we’re not able to welcome you on-site, our staff is doing everything we can to stay connected to you and to our community. While we’re closed, we’re using technology to keep us together. You can keep in touch with us on Facebook, Instagram, and through updates on our website, https://www.iaismuseum.org or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be providing stories and learning experiences for you until we can be together again.
In the spirit of enjoying our museum from home we are inviting everyone to join us Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/IAISMuseum at 2 pm for the month of March for a new video series we are calling “Inside with IAIS.” On Wednesday, March 25, at 2 p.m. there will be a lesson in archaeology with the research staff that will reveal the finer points of this fascinating discipline. On Friday, March 27, join Darlene Kascak, Native American Storyteller as she weaves a tale of how the animals as we know and love today came to be. To finish off the month of March, on the 30th kids are invited to explore the world of nature journaling by learning how to set up a journal that will help them record all their outdoors discoveries. Two videos have already appeared and can be found https://www.facebook.com/IAISMuseum.
At the end of March on our Museum Facebook Page, we will ask a series of questions related to our live Facebook Page Video Sessions. Answer all the questions correctly and be entered into a contest to win an amazing prize!
