What defines the Old West? Is it brazen outlaws and heroic sheriffs, rugged cowboys and cowgirls, westbound journeys on the Oregon Trail, or is it skilled Native American artisans?

Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West’s Western Wednesdays series explores the different sides of the Old West with interactive programming that includes historian lectures, hands-on covered-wagon making, pioneer-themed bingo, burlap journal-making, a “stolen” saddle-bag hunt, Western-themed painting sessions, lasso-making and throwing, bead-making, and basket-weaving.

During the series, attendees can learn more about the lives of ranchers and cowboys, Native American art and culture, and what it was really like traveling the Oregon Trail.
