The Peoples of the Past exhibition, on which this packet is based, is the result of many years of research by Illinois State Museum and other archaeologists. It highlights many of the changes in the lifestyles of Native Americans in Illinois over a period of four thousand years. Four life-size dioramas depict the changing features of everyday life, such as the foods the Native Americans ate, the tools they used to help sustain life, and the structures they built to use as homes. The educational packet allows one to learn about the lives of early Native Americans in Illinois by exploring the illustrations, the dioramas, and the challenges following the text.
