North American Indians
(Anness, Jan. 1, 2000)
Step back in time to North America when the Sioux, Apache, and other tribes roamed the Great Plains hunting bison and constructing tips made of animal skins, or when families of Iroquois farmers lived in communal longhouses. Step Into the World of North American Indians helps children explore the fascinating lifestyles, clothes, and ceremonies of the wide variety of North American Indian tribes that have lived in this region for centuries. Practical projects help children bring the past alive; readers can make their own tipi and birchback canoe, design a war shield, and learn how to create picture writing, the only written language of these disappearing tribes.
