The Autry National Center, formed in 2003 by the merger of the Autry Museum of Western Heritage with the Southwest Museum of the American Indian and the Women of the West Museum, is an intercultural history center dedicated to exploring and sharing the stories, experiences, and perceptions of the diverse peoples of the American West.

Over thousands of years, California's Indian peoples created complex and vibrant cultures, making extensive use of vast trading networks as well as their natural environments. Museum teachers will guide your students through our extensive collection of hands-on materials to teach them about the diversity of California Indian cultures and life ways.

On Thursday, October 29, 2015, third-grade students will travel to the world-renowned Autry National Center to learn about the world of the early natives of California.

Students will be departing from The Learning Castle at 9:00 a.m. and returning to campus at 1:15 p.m. Students will need to bring a sack lunch, including snack and drinks, in a clearly labeled disposable bag. Please make sure that you do not order Freshlunches on a field trip day.

If you would like your child to attend this field trip, please complete the attached Field Trip Permission form no later than Friday, October 16, 2015.
