The Clarke Museum is hosting two fun events this Saturday, Oct. 10. From noon until 3 p.m., enjoy Archaeology and Cultural Awareness Day, a free day at the museum as part of Archaeology Month. Join the Clarke Museum, California State Parks, Redwood National Park, and the Humboldt State University Anthropology Club for demonstrations on local Native American basket weavingflint knapping and more. People of all ages can participate in make-and-take art projects and other indoor and outdoor activities. While you're there, grab some lunch out in front of the museum at the traditional open-pit salmon barbecue from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. ($20). The barbecue features freshly caught Klamath River salmon prepared in traditional Native American style. The salmon is cut into filets, seasoned, skewered with hand-carved sticks and roasted over an open pit. The street will be closed to traffic so everyone can gather outside to enjoy great food and support the Clarke Museum. Plates include salmon, fry bread, coleslaw, beans and a soda. In addition to barbecue, you can explore vendor booths featuring Native American gifts and jewelry.
