Mountain Men
A hands-on learning experience as your students (one class of 25) try their hands at trap setting, tomahawk throwing, hooping a beaver skin, and dressing up as Mountain Men.
Come along in time and meet Blue Hawk, the 'Original Iron-jawed, Brass Mounted Copper-bellied Corpse Maker from the wilds of the Rocky Mountains' as he delights your students with the 'Life and Times of the Mountain Men'.

Who were these men?
Hugh Glass, James P. Beckworth, Joseph Meek, Andrew Henry, and William Ashley.

Why were they so important to the growth of the United States?

Where did they come from and what drew them from civilization into the uncharted wilderness of our fledgling country?

Blue Hawk demonstrates black-powder shooting.

The answers to these questions and many more await the listener hidden within the first person portrayal of Mike 'Blue Hawk' Adams - Mountain Man.
Place your feet like this and hold the axe here...


We offer several formats for this study.
For Example:

1 Hour Assembly: Pique the curiosity of your students about these hardy adventurers. Using first person characterization and storytelling, Blue Hawk and Morning Star will make your students want to read and know more. A good introduction to studying the west through the eyes of our early explorers.



Blue Hawk: Iron-jawed, Brass Mounted Copper-bellied Corpse Maker from the wilds of the Rocky Mountains.
*This format is especially suitable for an all-school assembly or other large group. We also offer a special price for three 1-hour assemblies on the same day. Please see 'Pricing' for a complete list of costs and available options.








1/2 Day Program: Begin with a 30-minute slide show, then rotate each class past a small museum display of original artifacts where students can ask individual questions.

*Specifically designed to give personal attention to several classes.

Learning to set traps
All Day Program: A hands-on 'learning experience' as your students (one class of 25) try their hands at trap setting, tomahawk throwing, hooping a beaver skin, and dressing up as Mountain Men. Plus, an indepth look at the Adam's Museum of Trade Goods, Personal Gear, and Trapping equipment of the 1800's. A unequaled chance for your students to slip back in time and gain an understanding of the Trappers & Explorers who learned to live 'with the land'.

*Uniquely structured to give a small group the most immersive experience available.

Hooping Beaver Skins

Dear Blue Hawk and Morning Star, Thank you for letting me set the traps and then set them off today. I enjoyed throwing the tomahawks and watching Blue Hawk shoot the gun. It was fun dressing up like a real Mountain Man.
