For the kids, learn how to play a game of “beans,”--an ancient game that children in Cherokee villages would play all the time! An art museum curated especially for kids will also be open.

For the adults, a trip to Colonial Williamsburg on American Indian Heritage Month would not be complete without exploring the "Navajo Weavings: Adapting Tradition" exhibition. It features a display of Navajo weavings never exhibited in Williamsburg before. The exhibition also highlights six pieces on loan from the collection of American folk art enthusiasts Pat and Rex Lucke.
