Your students are invited to take part in Red River society; at the start of the activity, students will be assigned class, race, and gender roles. With a costumed interpreter as their guide, the group will then visit various homes and establishments around the Fort, experiencing different welcomes. Students will quickly learn the effects of prejudice and bias on 19th-century society, as well as the importance of questioning stereotypes today. Length: Two (2) hours
