It will take an entire month to explore all the information in this incredible site from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. To play Culture Quest, begin with the map that shows ten regions in the Western Hemisphere where you can examine native cultures who lived there. Each region contains activities that will help you learn about the environment and culture of a native group who can be found there. In addition to the activity, you’ll find a picture of the environment where you can find out about the animals and plants that live there. Click on the topics at the top of the inset to find a small map, an artifact, related resources such as photographs, and even videos, and a look at the people of that particular culture today.
