Students will examine Pawnee family life, particularly the life of a young Pawnee child on the Nebraska plains in the 1840s. The class takes place in and near the Pawnee Earth lodge. The lodge and a tipi will be visited, and how they were used by Pawnees families will be discussed. Pawnee children’s chores will be taught and each child will have a chance to handle reproduction or artifact tools and utensils and experience several activities, including grinding corn and helping to set up a small tipi. The visit is not complete without a chance to visit Sampson the bison, and learn how bison were hunted and used by the Pawnee.
