Thirteen Turtle Moons - An Abenaki Child's Year
March 4 - Labor Day, 2017
The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s new Gallery 6 art exhibition aims to promote appreciation and inclusion of other cultures through the arts.
Native Americans have occupied the region known as New England for approximately 10,000 years. The 2017 MOSAIC program aims to raise visitors' awareness and stimulate their curiosity to know more about the culture of the indigenous people who lived here before the arrival of Europeans. The exhibit and related programs will focus primarily on the culture, traditions, habitats and aspects of the everyday life of a child living in an Abenaki Village. Using photography, drawings, diagrams, scale models, artifacts, text, and stories/myths that illustrate the Abenaki experience, the exhibition will be structured around the thirteen months of the lunar calendar.
