Native Voices Exhibit

Beautiful landscapes provide a sense of place and a dramatic backdrop for fun, interactive learning. Stunning objects from Boston Children's Museum's collection as well as historic and contemporary photos all tell the story of resilient cultures carefully balanced between traditional practice and the contemporary world. Visitors meet members of the Passamaquoddy and Penobscot of Maine, the Narragansett of Rhode Island, and the Aquinnah Wampanoag and Mashpee Wampanoag of Massachusetts as they explore a native school, museum, Pow Wow, artist's workshop, and grandma's kitchen.

  • Toboggan down a hill in Maine
  • Explore a cranberry bog on Martha's Vineyard
  • Learn about daily life at the Nuweetooun Tribal School
