Traditional Native American Arts and Activities by Arlette N. Braman


Traditional Native American Arts and Activities by Arlette N. Braman

Did you ever wonder what life might be like in a Native American village? What would you eat, and how would you pass the long winter nights? In this book, you can find out by cooking and eating traditional Catawba roasted corn, making your own Lakota beaded wristband, or creating a decorative Zuni water jar. At the same time, you'll be exploring indigenous cultures from the Inuit of the Arctic to the Tohono O'odam of the Sonoran Desert. You'll be amazed and delighted by the wealth of fascinating facts and exciting things to do and make in Traditional Native American Arts and Activities. Jam-packed with fun and easy-to-follow projects, recipes, and games, this captivating book explores what makes the heritage of Native Americans so unique and wonderful. Where else can you learn how to sew a Tlingit button blanket, stir up a yummy Yupik wild raspberry dessert, or make a coaster using a traditional Seminole patchwork design? Encounter the stories and customs of the early North Americans, and of their descendants today, and have a great time doing it!
