Volunteers Sought to Teach Indian Culture

September 09, 1997

El Dorado Nature Center is seeking volunteers to take museum kits to schools in Orange County and teach children about Native American culture.

Volunteers will receive 20 hours of instruction in the history, culture and economy of the Chumash and Tongva people who lived in Southern California before the first European settlers.

The Acorns, Sea & Sage Moveable Museum kits to be delivered to schools include replicas of artifacts made and used by Native Americans.

Training sessions will be from 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 30 and Oct. 2, 7 and 9. Saturday, Oct. 4, will be an all-day field trip to a Chumash Village site.

At the end of training, volunteers will work two mornings a month in classrooms.

El Dorado Nature Center, 7550 E. Spring St., Long Beach, serves schoolchildren in Orange and Los Angeles counties. Information: (562) 570-1747.
