Woodland Animals of Patuxet

Deer, bear, moose, and other woodlands animals were important winter-time resources for Wampanoag communities of the 1600s. Explore how these animals adapted to survive the harsh winters. Plimoth Patuxet’s own educators will explore these animals through storytelling, creative movement, and creating animal artwork to take home. Please be advised that real furs, bones, and tendons are used in this program. Wampanoag people respect all living beings by using every part of the animal, and many of these animals were donated to the Museum by local Indigenous people for educational purposes. This program is best suited for children ages 5-10. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
