The Suffolk County, N.Y., Historical Society's exhibit about four nomadic tribes is pretty nomadic itself. The "Structures and Cultures" exhibit is housed in a modified 37-foot Winnebago to allow it to travel to schools, including Nokomis Elementary School in Holtsville, where second-graders recently viewed spearheads, pottery and other artifacts from nomadic tribes such as Long Island's native Algonquins. "It's like we're training young Indiana Joneses. It is a bridge to communities and neighborhoods," said Kathryn Curran, the organization's executive director.
