Labor Day Weekend Kipona Powwow on City Island

The State Museum's Section of Archaeology will be returning to the Native American Powwow held on City Island as part of the Kipona Festival in Harrisburg this Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 5, 6 and 7.

Attractions of the State Museum’s display are to include the ever popular recreated dugout canoe, informational brochures on State Museum programs with coupons for reduced admission, children's activity worksheets, the 2009 Archaeology Month poster, and an exhibit of select artifacts from City Island excavations.

The purpose of our presence at the powwow is to raise awareness of all things archaeological; that sites are important non-renewable resources, the upcoming public archaeology program at Fort Hunter Park, October is Archaeology Month in Pennsylvania, Archaeology Day at the State Capitol, and to encourage visitation to the State Museum and our websites. Come out and enjoy the unofficial end of summer this weekend at the powwow on City Island.
