American Indiansby Fandex (edt)
Synopses & Reviews
Crazy Horse, Kennewick Man, Navajo code talkers, and Geronimo, the unyielding Apache rebel. Fandex American Indians introduces 50 North American tribes through their people, history, myths and culture.
Legendary figures, from the Ottowa chief Pontiac to the Lakota warrior and mystic Sitting Bull. Events of great historical moments--the tragic Cherokee Trail of Tears. And the tribes themselves, including the first native people to encounter Europeans--the Inuit, believed to have had contact with the Vikings around A.D 984. It's a coast-to-coast visual encyclopedia, filled with portraits, historical photographs, artifacts, tribal artwork, and lithographs.
Covering a subject that is taught in school and embraced by students, American Indians functions like a pocket visual encyclopedia of the history, culture, and customs of fifty major tribes across North America. Written by the former director of public affairs of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian, the deck covers geographical origins, myths and religious beliefs, important people and historical events, arts, festivals, and contemporary issues. The mysterious Anasazi. The democratic Iroquois. The friendly Wampanoags, who helped create the holiday we know as Thanksgiving. Elaborate rites of the Hopi. All illustrated with portraits, historic photographs, artifacts, tribal artwork, and other images.
Each title combines individually die-cut cards with full-color illustrations plus hundreds of intriguing facts, stories, and statistics, and is a hand-held deck of knowledge.
A pocket visual encyclopedia of the history, culture, and customs of 50 major tribes across North America.
