New Interactive Outdoor Exhibit
To do this, we need YOUR help. With a grant from the Outer Banks Community Foundation we are building a longhouse. However, the longhouse, is only one part and must be furnished to truly bring the past to life. This includes traditional pottery, baskets, mats, fishing and gardening tools...and that’s just the beginning!
With a minimum of $1000 we can purchase materials for our volunteer Native artisans to create the furnishings that will not only add life to the exhibit but also withstand the harshness of island weather.

A special thank you to Through The Eyes Of An Inventor for their music selection.
Most of the structure of our longhouse is complete!
But there is still so much work left to do!
We are inviting volunteers to come Halloween weekend to work on cattail mats to cover our wonderful longhouse and we expect that A LOT will be accomplished.
However, we still need to outfit our volunteers with leather, pre-colonial regalia!
Men use 1-3 hides while women need 3-4 for EACH regalia being made!
We've also got plans for an artificial garden that we can't wait to share!
When they're stained in April, they'll look just like natural wood poles and stand up to our harsh island weather!
