Publisher Comments:

Native American Crafts and Skills is an excellent introduction to the study of Native American crafts and outdoor skills. This book not only describes the skills Native Americans have cultivated over hundreds of years, but explains in step-by-step detail - through over two hundred illustrations by the author himself - how to create all kinds of Native American handiwork. Begin with the process of tanning leather to create authentic Native American clothing - from elaborate war bonnets to several varieties of moccasins. Discover the basics of the Native American 'kitchen,' including utensils and cookery, as well as the many foods common to the Native American diet. Chapters on Native American games and musical instruments showcase a side of domestic Native American life rarely seen before, and a section on jewelry making will give you a head start on creating your own elaborate geometric beadwork designs. Annotated with a complete list of reference books and supply sources, this is an authentic and exciting book for people who want to share in the beauty and artistry of Native American history. (5 3/4 X 9, 216 pages, map, illustrations, diagrams)
