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.
Guests are not required to wear masks indoors or outdoors while touring Colonial Williamsburg, except when inside public transportation.
