Screening of ‘Native America’ at the Rockwell Museum
November 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Space is limited – advance registration is encouraged! Walk-ins welcome on a first come, first served basis, space permitting.
WSKG and The Rockwell Museum present NATIVE AMERICA, Nature to Nations, the second episode in the new four-part PBS series that challenges everything we thought we knew about the Americas before and since contact with Europe. The Native American Council of Corning Incorporated is partnering with us for this event in recognition of Native American Heritage Month.
Following the screening, traditional Haudenosaunee refreshments will be served and there will be time for informal post-screening discussions. Information tables will be available, including an educator resource table with materials about classroom resources thematically relevant to the series that is available on PBS LearningMedia.
K-12 teachers can use these free resources and support materials to jump-start classroom conversations and help students delve more deeply into the history of Native-American culture and innovation.
Many resource tables will be available, including a table featuring a board game, The Journey Home, created by a Pre-Service student to provide fourth and fifth-grade students with a fun activity to deepen their understanding of social studies content related to Native Americans. The game is inspired by her mother’s journey home after her separation from her family and tribe.
