1620: Did young women in 17th century New England have the same responsibilities and opportunities that they do today? How did native and colonial girls transition to womanhood? Meet a 17th-century colonial woman, cook colonial foods over an open hearth, learn a colonial dance and make a wampum pendant from quahog shell. A special part of the day will help girls grow on the inside, by discussing cultural and racial stereotypes (like those about Native People) in our everyday lives. Led by one of the museum’s Native staff members, girls will brainstorm how they can raise awareness of and take action against stereotypes in their communities.
