New Native American exhibit opens in Danville

Museum display features games, storytelling and crafts

A new exhibit, "Native American Life," is now open in Danville for visitors to learn about the indigenous people who inhabited the San Ramon Valley more than 5,000 years ago.

Hand-crafted tools using wood, shell and fiber will be on display at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, along with examples of hunting and gathering, natural foods, wardrobe and basket weaving.

According to exhibit organizers, a main focus in the display this year is the role of games in local Native American culture. The exhibit will include an interactive game for visitors and the opportunity to try basket weaving.

The museum will also host creation-myth and folk-tale storytelling on Saturday mornings for the duration of the exhibit.

The exhibit runs now through Nov. 9 at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley located at 205 Railroad Ave. in Danville.

For more information, contact the museum at 837-3750.
