The Delaware First Nation in Chatham-Kent wants people of all ages to understand native culture.

For the past three years, kids have been invited to the reserve at Moraviantown to visit a recreated First Nation village.

This week, Nmaachihna opened to the general public.

Nmaachihna offers tourists the chance to experience First Nations' culture, history and traditional way of life.

The name Nmaachihna means 'We are returning home,' according to the centre's website.

"From wigwam construction to hide tanning. We have a sports field where lacrosse and Lenape football is played. We have a high ropes course here, a low ropes course, a dip net fishing exhibit, a number of different programs where tourists will experience how our ancestors lived," site manager Norm Logan told Windsor Morning host Tony Doucette.

Logan said there has been great interest from all over Ontario and into the United States since he began marketing the attraction this spring.
