The Smithsonian Institution is such a national treasure, not only for those who can travel to Washington, D.C. to visit its various museums, but to those who can visit only through the internet. The National Museum of the American Indian is filled with objects from Native cultures throughout North and South America. Playing the Culture Quest game will introduce you to ten different nations. Play the game for each nation to collect badges, but after playing the game, be sure to examine the many other options on the site to learn about the Native cultures even today. This terrific, comprehensive resource includes teaching resources, too.
