CHILDREN HOUR... A CULTURAL EDUCATION EXPERIENCE!
Children’s Hour is a free, weekly program on Thursdays from 9am to 10am that will teach the history and culture of the Narragansett Tribal Nation through music, dance and storytelling. "It is a wonderful way to engage local families in the knowledge of Indigenous culture through fun and interactive learning experiences,” says Lorén Spears, Executive Director of the Tomaquag Museum.

Funding for this program is provided through The Rhode Island Foundation’s Centennial Community Grants program. Children’s Hour targets pre-school and homeschoolers during the school year and the families during school vacation. It will be an intergenerational experience with parent, grandparents, or other caregivers participating with infants to middle schoolers in the mix.
Each week will have a different theme or focus. It will include music, dance, storytelling, engagement with exhibits and art or science activities. Each activity will be scaled to fit the ages and abilities of the youth. We will encourage peer mentoring between older and younger participants.
