In recognition of October being Archeology Month, this is a fun exercise for elementary school students, an interactive education module developed by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.
"May this module inspire other artists to create similar online applications for our children," said Rene' White (Feather) artist with the Native American Church of Virgina.
This link features artwork by John White, governor of the “Lost Colony” that settled in present-day North Carolina in 1585.
White’s colorful eyewitness depictions of Indian life provide a compelling means for learning about the clothing, rituals, activities, food, and houses of Native Americans of the mid-Atlantic coastal region.
Enter the Indian world of White’s paintings through an interactive education module developed by the Department of Historic Resources.
Based on three of White's watercolors, this module is a good online resource and springboard for learning about Indian life, especially for elementary school students. It combines history, archaeological artifacts, and the oral traditions of Native Americans today.
