I found this display of a Native American boy interesting because their culture has always intrigued me. I graduated from a high school in Oklahoma in Muskogee Nation. While I know much about the five friendly tribes, Seminole is the one we covered the least in my classes. In this exhibit, the boy is using a palm frond as a sort of cushion to be comfortable while sitting on the rocks while watching other Native Americans fish. They use every resource the land gives them even if it is fallen branches. This exhibit taught me how the Seminole tribe used their landscape of Florida through this boy and the houses in the background. It contrasts greatly with the land in Oklahoma, so the Seminole Tribe must have been forced to learn all new ways to do life.
The underwater exhibit put me in perspective of nature. Our world is 75% water with numerous creatures living within it. I am five feet tall so any animal larger than me has my respect which ends up being most. It is interesting though to see that some jellyfish are this large because we usually think of them so small. Humans cannot really conquer the oceans which leaves them mostly pure other than pollutants. They had the sounds of the sea going on in the background, and you get an inside look to underwater life while still being able to breath normally. While we are not "settling" in the ocean, we are still taking it over with our trash. Humanity needs to love our Earth more.
