The price starts at $250 per day for on-going demos, talks, and children's hands-on learning activities throughout the event's public hours, for the first two consecutive days, and $200 per consecutive day after. Scheduled presentations (for field trip students or education days) are also available at an extra cost of $25 per formal presentation. Travel distance and hotel costs may add to the price. Please inquire about the specifics for your event.
Do we wear special garments?
Jessica does wear Native style period garments (proto-historic, 17th century or early historic, 18th, or early 19th century of typical Woodland wrap around skirt/trade shirt fashion or Great Lakes strap-dress) and Mark dresses in typical 17th/18th century interpreter/trader fashion for living history events. We can wear these outfits for powwows and museum events if requested, otherwise, we work in normal clothing and bring the period clothes for display, as we do for school outreach programs.
What is the set up for outdoor and living history events?
We set up a full temporary camp with structure (lean-to or peaked lodge style, covered with mats and bark), cooking and food preparation areas, and display areas for items. We do require a perimeter (which we make of stakes and natural rope) to keep crowds at a distance from delicate items and to keep a "stage area" we can demonstrate in without overcrowding.
What is the set up for indoors?
We usually need nothing more than tables and/or wall space. We can even set up the camp structure indoors when program is requested in a large enough room, with certain floor surfaces.
