Scavenger Hunt Bethany Fales, Sarah Cole, Robin Meyer, Alison Byrd, Gwendolen Raley Mission Statement The scavenger hunt is designed to engage visitors of all ages by helping them to identify and understand the idea of contact in Native American culture. The scavenger hunt will engage participants in contact of their own by encouraging one on one discussion with Native American people. Orientation Information will be disseminated before the scavenger hunt to define and explain what contact is. This can be done in a couple of ways: -discussion with information table staff -literature (pamphlet, guide, etc.) They will be encouraged to look for "points of contact" by viewing the exhibits and objects in the Eiteljorg Museum and also on the grounds of the Indian Market. Age Groups The scavenger hunt will be an opportunity for all ages to take part. The different groups that are being considered include: Families (including small children) Adults Young adults (jr. and sr. high) individually or in groups By having families, as a group, smaller children can still participate because they have parental help. It also encourages intergenerational contact. Format The scavenger hunt will be an open ended exploration of the museum and Indian Market. Participants will be given packets of information and scavenger forms appropriate to their age. Participants will be given a list of types of contact to facilitate their own explorations. These types include, but are not limited totrade, religion, technology, tourism, sports, treaties, art, environmental, legal, education, political, etc. Education Department The scavenger form will be developed in conjunction with the Eiteljorg’s educational department. The form should include questions that require the participants to engage artists in conversation as well as facilitate family learning. After the Hunt Participants may leave commentary on their experience in the form of a video interview once they are finished. After completing the scavenger hunt, the participants will turn in their forms and receive a small prize, such as a poster or pencil.
