Since you can’t visit the museum right now, let us come to you!
Our Creek Indian educational program is a lesson brought to your classroom and conducted by Historic Westville staff and interpreters. The program uses interactive participation to encourage active learning, focusing on the experiences of the Creek Indians during the Indian Removal of the 1830s, the hardships they faced, and the choices they had to make to best preserve their families and ways of life.
This one-hour program meets Georgia and Alabama educational standards, but is also great for homeschool groups, summer camps, and after school programs. We can also tailor the program for adult learners and senior groups.
What do I need to know? How do I prepare?
It is best for students to already be somewhat familiar with the native history of the area. If this is not the case, please let us know when you make your reservation and we can tailor a program that also introduces basic Creek Indian history. The program also requires students to read aloud.
