Art as a window into culture, to introduce basic values and symbols of the Iroquois.
The Iroquois Indian Museum is an anthropological institution dedicated to educating the public about the art, history , and material culture of those Native Americans known as the Iroquois. Located in traditional Mohawk territory, just down the hill from Howe Caverns, the Museum features a modern building designated in the shape and spirit of the historic longhouses of the Iroquois. Its exhibits feature both contemporary Iroquois art, as well as artifacts of Iroquois and other Native American people who once lived in the area. There is a Children’s Museum area, as well as a giftshop. Outside, the Museum features a 45 acre Nature Park with trails. A variety of programs are available. Educational staff includes Iroquois & non-Native educators. The Museum site is a stimulating object-based learning environment that provides direct encounters with people, art, and history of the first nations to inhabit the land.
