Reservations and Confirmation of Visit: Visits can be arranged by calling 917-902-6628, (It is always best to call since the online information is checked at end of week) faxing this form to 646.707.0414, or using our online form. You may check available dates using our online calendar. Please note, however, that available dates are subject to change. After we receive payment (and your payment has cleared) we will notify you by fax or email. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call.

Cancellations: At the Cultural Center, we are forced to adhere to a strict cancellation policy. Canceling less than 2 weeks before your trip will forfeit your entire payment. A cancellation made 2 to 3 weeks before your trip will forfeit 1/2 of your payment. Contact the center for further information.

Returned Check Policy: In the event of a returned check, there will be an additional $25.00 penalty fee added on to any incurred banking fees.

Bad Weather/Emergencies: Contact Irma LaGuerre at 917.902-6628, in the event of an emergency or inclement weather. Please call within 24 hours. We will reschedule your visit for a later date.

Luncheon: Students are invited to bring lunch and “picnic” around the tipi after the show is over.

Gift Shop/Trading Post: Please mention to the parents that the children may need some spending money. Books, craft kits, handmade crafts and other items will be low cost, but high quality and extend the day’s activities. Jewelry, books and other handmade arts that appeal to adults are also available. We extend the learning by stocking our gift shop with culturally accurate items that do not perpetuate stereotypes.

Wheel Chair Access: We are sorry, but we have NO Wheelchair Access above the 1st floor. If you make arrangements for transporting your own students (bring some strong adults with you), it may be possible to carry small wheelchair bound children to the second floor. However, we cannot offer any help in transporting students and are not recommending it. If you have wheelchair bound students, please consider this BEFORE you book your visit so they are not inconvenienced or disappointed.

What We Expect from Classes: Teachers must be part of the workshops and prepare students for their visit. Let us know ahead of time if you need translators or if students have any special needs.

What You Can Expect from the the Children’s Cultural Center of Native America: Your class will receive a first rate puppet show performed by Native puppeteers; fun activities; correct information about Native peoples that dispel stereotypes; quality programming and materials; and our undivided attention!
