Field Trip Friday: The People’s Center (all ages)
From 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Friday field trips are lead by Elaine Anderson-Wood and Nikki Shaffer. Elaine is a certified tour guide (and teacher) with the state of Montana. Nikki has a degree in history from the U of M and has studied military science. Both are teaching additional history-related classes at eNDVR and truly enjoy making history “come alive” for participants of all ages!
Let us know in advance whether you plan to take your own vehicle, wish to car pool from eNDVR, or wish to reserve space in Elaine’s van (10 seats available). If you wish to carpool in Elaine’s van, there will be a small fee, between $1-3 depending on the distance of the trip, to help cover the cost of gas. You should bring lunch, snacks and layered clothing since Montana’s weather is unpredictable. Cameras, field guides, binoculars, collecting jars and sketch pads are always great additions.
“The People’s Center is the place to experience the rich cultural heritage of the Salish, Pend d’Oreille and Kootenai tribes. The traditions and culture of our tribes have been passed down orally from generation to generation since time began. As our lifestyles change with time and technology, we continue to preserve and protect our heritage, history and culture. We invite you to explore the artifacts and exhibits, and to hear the stories of our people in their own voices. We also invite you to participate in our cultural activities, our celebrations, known as pow-wows, and other events reflecting the Tribes.
The People’s Center perpetuates this rich heritage, through our tradition of oral history, and by creating opportunities of exchange between tribal elders, youth and the public. Through education, we hope to dispel myths and stereotyping of Native Americans and create better understanding between all peoples.” (The People’s Center)
