Lelooska Museum: Artists At Work

Immerse your students in the grounds of the Lelooska Cultural Center as you visit the Lelooska Museum for an in depth look at the art and artifacts that share the cultural heritage of Native Peoples from across North America. Interpreters will take your students on a guided tour of some of the significant art and artifacts in our museum collection.

Your students will have the chance for hands-on learning with our cultural sharing box. They will have the chance to touch and handle a carved wooden mask, a miniature button blanket, a miniature bentwood box, a ravenstail weaving sample, abalone shell, ermine, trade beads, cedar bark and more.
You will then walk down to the Gathering Hall and see traditional artists working on their art.

You will encounter artisans working on at least one of the following traditional art forms: woodcarving, button blankets or northwest coast flat design. You will also have a chance to see additional exhibits and explore our gift shop where there will be a variety of books, shirts, and educational materials.
