About This Activity

Class Description: Students will study Native American art and culture. Various tribes will be covered, including local tribes, while examining how art is incorporated into customs, symbols, and ceremonies. We will learn about the process, methods and materials the Native American’s used to create art, clothing, housing and other items. Students will be making their own pieces in a similar fashion. Projects include; shields, dream catchers, talking sticks, weavings, Kachina dolls, vest and par flèche.
