As POW WOW Approaches

Our Kindergarter students always take time, in the fall, to study various Native American tribes. Each class studies one tribe in depth, then later participate in a POW WOW with all the other classes, dressed in the clothing that represents that tribe. I like to do a little project with them that pertains to their specific tribe to expose them to Native American art. Above are three different lessons. The blue Nez Perce blanket patterns, the Iroquois legend of the The Turtles Race with Bear and the Sioux turtle, representing their 13 month year with 28 days each. More are on the way as they are completed.
