Indigenous Peoples' Weekend
Join us for a weekend celebration of indigenous peoples and cultures. On Saturday and Sunday, Museum Educators will offer special programs in Revolution Place, the Museum's discovery center.
In the core exhibitions, listen as lifelike figures of the Oneida Indian Nation debate whether to support the Revolutionary cause in the Museum’s immersive multimedia gallery and meet an Educator at a Discovery Cart to learn more about their stories.

Saturday and Sunday at 3:30 pm in Lenfest Myer Theater
In this 25-minute film, discover the crucial but little known history of the extraordinary contributions of one Native American people who chose to commit themselves to the Patriot cause when nearly all other trives fought on the side of the British.
