Frisco Native American

Frisco Native American Museum MUSEUM WINS STATE CONSERVATION AWARD At the entrance to the Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center a small sign notes, “Native Americans lived in harmony with the world for thousands of years. Come inside and see how they interacted with their environment.” Once inside, visitors find that a common thread running through Native American tribal beliefs is an understanding that man and nature are intertwined, creating a deep respect for the land and an awareness of the importance of all life. Many exhibits in the museum not only showcase artifacts and art but also convey native conservation efforts. For example, native crafts frequently include items that might normally be discarded. Moccasins decorated with porcupine quills, turtle shells used as rattles, deer “dew claws” used as adornments/noise makers, and decorated animal teeth for jewelry are just a few of the “repurposed” items. An exhibit on endangered species is designed to increase awareness of the need for conservation efforts, and an interactive exhibit on the “Web of Life” invites visitors to share their own ideas for conservation. Visitors also have the opportunity to see conservation efforts at work on the museum nature trail which includes the use of dead trees for bird feeders and bird house supports, natural gardens, and tree seedling areas. In recognition of its ongoing efforts, the museum was recently awarded the state Conservation Communicator award from the Hugh Hammond Bennett Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society. “It was a great honor to receive the award,” said museum Executive Director, Carl Bornfriend. “Conservation is such an integral part of the Native American story that it is included in almost everything we do.” The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday and is located on Hatteras island in Frisco.
