West Virginia 4-H youth experience Eastern Woodland Indian traditions
Through a partnership with West Virginia University’s Native American Studies Program, West Virginia 4-H campers learned about Eastern Woodland Indians, the first people to inhabit what is today the Mountain State. With the state's American Indian/Alaska Native population estimated at less than 1%, West Virginia youth have few opportunities to learn directly from Native American educators. Campers in Braxton, Cabell, Kanawha, Mason, Roane and Wayne counties experienced the history, communities, agricultural practices and other traditional aspects about the earliest residents of the region from an Native American Eastern Woodland cultural expert.
This project was presented with financial support from the
West Virginia Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment
for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations do not
