Piankeshaw Trails is a unique program developed by trained anthropologist Sheryl Hartman to bring the cultures and history of the Woodland tribes to students in an exciting and fascinating assembly style program. With a museum quality array of artifacts and everyday items ranging from textiles, vegetable fiber clothing, bags, mats and cooking tools to hunting, this program skillfully combines elements of everyday life with a specific and artful telling of the story of interaction between Native Americans and the first Europeans. Highly interactive, with much audience participation, this amazing program meets state educational standards in the fourth and fifth grade curriculums of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky and is adaptable to meet the needs of other adjacent states.

Though especially well suited to the needs of fourth and fifth grade students, the program is interesting and of benefit for all grades.

Piankeshaw Trails is available both as a standard 45 minute presentation as well as a 90 minute in-depth experience.

With decades of experience interpreting Native American culture for children, Ms. Hartman brings an amazing depth of knowledge combined with a lively and fun style of presentation sure to please all!
