The arts and crafts developed and practiced by the Indian peoples of North America varied widely among tribes of different geographical regions. Each tribe used the resources at hand — wood, stone, shell, bone, and other materials — to develop a craft technology that suited the needs of its people.
This carefully researched and informative book contains 39 detailed, accurately rendered illustrations (including 5 double-page spreads) that depict various North American Indian peoples engaged in typical craft activities. Ideal for coloring, the images show Native Americans building a Seminole house of palmetto leaves, making drums, constructing a bark canoe, painting tribal history on teepee coverings, making and painting ceramic pots, carving totem poles, making masks, tomahawks and clothing; weaving rugs and blankets, preparing hides, silversmithing and much more.
Extensive, fact-filled captions accompany the illustrations, making this an excellent educational resource as well as an entertaining coloring book.
