Over five hundred years ago the Calusa Indians, a complex culture lived in the Charlotte Harbor area where we live today. They thrived on fishing, unlike others who mainly survived on agriculture, until they met their demise at the hand of invaders. This program includes an interpretive narrative on the Calusa culture including their customs and diet, as well as a demonstration on how shells were used as tools and palm fibers were used to make fishing nets. You will also get to paint Calusa-like masks out of palm husks to take home! Cost is only $5 cash per person at the program to help BIPS inspire, educate and preserve our natural and historic treasures.
