The exhibit, "California Indians: Making a Difference," includes mroe than 400 artifacts and represents more than 150 tribes from across the state. Upon entering the exhibit, visitors will be met by women weaving baskets, a full-size canoe and artifacts from the earliest days of California. Other highlights include the fur cape and arrowhead made by Ishi, who is said to be Califoarnia's best-known Indian, and "The Chipped Stone Bear," California's official prehistoric artifact.

It's definitely a must see for parents and fourth-graders who are studying California history. On opening night, even Gov. Jerry Brown got a lesson in basket-weaving.
