Product description

This title lets you step back in time to North America when the Sioux, Blackfoot and other tribes roamed the Great Plains. You can discover how they set up camps in tipis and hunted for bison, and explore the customs and ceremonies of the many different nomadic groups - their sacred dances, mythical kachina dolls and ornate clothes. 15 practical projects draw you into the Native American lifestyle, showing how to build a real-life tipi, create a pictograph story, or join in a Sioux war dance with your very own ankle bells and dance wand. It is packed with over 400 photographs and illustrations, including maps, cross sections and a pictorial timeline, to really bring the past to life. Ideal for home or school use for 8- to 12-year-olds. Marvel at the vast spread of the North American tribes, from the Arctic Inuit to the warrior Apache, each with its own unique customs and rituals. You can discover how explorers, colonists and gold-hunters forced the brave Indian chiefs into battle or into hiding, and how legendary heroes such as Pocahontas and Sitting Bull reacted to the threat from Europe.
You can learn the wisdom of these expert craftspeople by making your own stunning objects, from a model canoe and a decorated fighting shield to a False Face Mask of the Iroquois tribe.
