That black fur in the middle is a glove made out of bear fur.
This gentleman was very good at explaining everything and answering questions any of the kids had. He was just then showing the kids how they used to pick things up from the fire w/ the antlers.
We went outside to see where the tribe would have lived. About 75 people living in a circle w/ a few huts and such. I don't dare want me kids to complain about sharing a room. LOL. Very informative presentation.
There were 4 sections of mat laid out. One was all about food and cooking. Another about animals. Another about weapons and hunting. Another about games and everyday life. We all learned something new for sure.
It was SO wet outside and muddy. Really, really wet. We were soaked by the time we went back to the shelter where the mats were.

Reni and Irina just hanging out.
Watching him shoot one of those darts. All the kids have decided they want to make one.
Watching him throw the arrows. Truly unreal how far those things can fly!
Getting ready to throw some arrows.
Checking out the weapons again.
Summer learned how to mill corn and I'm sure she could do it everyday. Now, to harvest that energy for other things. Notice how even the shelter is soak and wet?
