Museum of Past and Future

Today we went to the museum at Pomona again and it was much different than last year. There was a lot more explanation and clearing up of some of last year’s concerns with the artifacts that were in the museum. An elder also came and told us what the artifacts were made for, who they were made by, and a little of their backstory. We also made baskets the same way our ancestors made them. Kind of. After the baskets we painted on pieces of cloth with natural paint. Black was made from charcoal, yellow from yellow ochre, and red from red ochre. I painted a kid chasing after Bigfoot in the forest.
