Visitors have to locate five different carts, including a “Fur Cart” with a variety of pelts and a “Powwow Cart” with traditional regalia for Native dancers. The “Native Games Cart” features a ring-and-pin game that’s harder than it looks, and “Green Cart” teaches guests about the four R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle & Respect. Lastly, gamers try to match traditional Pequot household items with their modern equivalents at the “Pot, Pouch & Pocket Cart.” This event is an exhilarating and educational experience for all ages!
