"This is a book not only for reading, but for doing," the authors write in their foreword; "try making some of the things the Indians lived with, . . . and in so doing come to better understand these first Americans."
Designed for creative individuals, group leaders, and teachers, this informative and unusual book is a guide to the crafts of the main North American Indian tribes in the seven basic cultural areas. Interwoven with the history and customs of the different tribes are instructions that even the novice can follow in making moccasins, dresses, shirts, hats, headbands, hoods, fish nets, bowls, baskets, dolls, masks, kgames, drums, shields, looms for weaving, and jewelry. Other topics covered are hair styles, food, music, names, sign language, and picture writing.
