Did you know that the oldest man-made mummy ever found was in this hemisphere? King Tut may be the most famous mummy but 2000 years before Egyptian mummies the Chinchorro people of Chile were honoring their beloveds with their own unique methods. Storyteller Jasmin Cardenas invites you to hear about some of the incredible archaeological finds and stories of those first peoples of the Americas. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect cultural studies and literacy.
