Beginning in the Gus Fonner Memorial Rotunda students will take a look at the tribes of the Nebraska plains, with a specific focus on the indigenous Nebraska tribe, the Pawnee. Plains life before the horse, trappers and traders will be discussed. The class then moves to the nearby Overland Trail marker, where students will learn about the impact of westward expansion on the Pawnee. A visit to Sampson the bison will follow, where they will learn about the use of bison by the plains tribes, and how the eventual destruction of most of the bison on the plains contributed to the decline of the tribes. The class will also visit the tipi and Earth Lodge to learn about family structure, social customs, and daily life and have the opportunity to handle both reproduction and artifact tools, utensils and other material culture items.
