As an extension to their classroom lessons, fourth grade students at Academy Street Elementary School were recently taken on an educational adventure into the rich historical backgrounds of Native American culture, courtesy of the Long Island-based “Journeys into American Indian Territory.” In the school’s gymnasium, students were introduced to authentic cultural elements of Native American tribes, such as hunting and gathering materials and traditional Iroquois drums. Additionally, they were able to partake in traditional Iroquois and Algonquian games, and created clay pots.
