Greetings, The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is a great resource for your classroom! We offer engaging fieldtrips, online resources, and more to help you share the Seminole story with your students.
Fieldtrips to the Museum are a great way to bring the Seminole story to life. Owned and operated by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, the Museum is located on the Big Cypress Reservation. Our diorama style exhibits highlight the Tribe’s past while rotating exhibits focus on topics relevant to both past and present Seminole life.
Nestled in the heart of the Everglades, our Museum also offers a mile-long boardwalk that allows students to explore our natural cypress dome. Our Living Village often features Seminole artisans who demonstrate craft making techniques.
Students may also get hands on with craft activities and games. In order to make these opportunities available for all students we offer special field trip rates to Title 1 School and non-profit organizations through our Culture Access Program.
Our American Indian Arts Celebration (AIAC) is a great time to bring students. This November students can enjoy traditional and contemporary arts and crafts, dance, music, food, special presentations, wildlife shows, Native vendors and so much more!
If you are unable to visit the museum in person, our website also features many online resources that you may use in your classroom including curriculum and primary resources. You can also take a virtual field trip through Streamable Learning. Join us from the comfort of your classroom for “Seminole Arts”.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. We strive to be a valuable resource as you teach students about Florida and the Seminole people!
