SCHEDULE OF BOXES
- Month 1 – Mali
Why begin an American History course in Africa? Because the study of our nation (rather than the study of a continent) begins with the merging of three broad cultures: European, African, and Native American. We have chosen to begin our American story in the days before these three cultures came together in the New World. Learn about the richest man in the world, Mansa Musa, and his amazing and beautiful kingdom.
- Month 2 – Powhatan
Visit one of the Eastern Woodland native tribes and learn more about the indigenous peoples of America. Try your hand at farming, baking and bead work, and read a traditional folk tale.

All aboard for a fantastic look at the ups and downs of life at sea, the men who braved the journey, and the legacy they left behind.
