Learn about Chumash culture

The Museum of Ventura County is accepting registrations for its summer Chumash Youth Program, which teaches kids about Ventura County’s indigenous Native American culture.

The program will run from 9 a.m. to noon Mon. through Fri., June 17 to 21 at the museum, 100 E. Main St. in downtown Ventura.

Students in grades three and four are eligible. The session is limited to 15 participants.

The Chumash Youth Program is a junior anthropology program that teaches children about the culture of the Chumash through songs, stories and games. Students will use traditional methods and materials to make their own clapper stick instrument, arrowhead and plant-fiber string.

T-shirt, snacks and all materials are included in the registration fee of $60 for the public or $45 for museum members. Partial scholarships are available.

For registration forms, go to www.venturamuseum.org or the museum lobby.
