Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Complementing the authors’ excellent Native Americans Today: Resources and Activities for Educators, Grades 4–8 (2000), this child-centered gathering of history, crafts, and activities opens with a chapter of stereotype-dispelling information, then goes on in regionally arranged chapters to present brief accounts of the past and (especially) present lives and customs of several dozen cultures, from Mi’kmaq to Native Hawaiian. Carefully steering clear of items with ceremonial or religious import, Dennis and Hirschfelder add simple directions for creating versions of distinctive everyday objects—such as Seminole-style decorations for a baseball cap or Winnebago appliqué ribbonwork for a notebook cover—plus games, recipes (with notes suggesting adult supervision where cooking or cutting is involved), and art projects. Rattray supplies simple line patterns or diagrams throughout. With plenty of ideas for curriculum enrichment, this resource also includes enough historical background to be a good supplementary source of information for early reports. Back matter includes extensive lists of books, Web sites, and Native American museums and cultural centers. Grades 4-6. --John Peters

By J. Loudin-Rich on September 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
I got this book from the library to see if it would help with a homeschool unit on Native American history. The crafts look enjoyabe. Even though this is a "native american" history book, I would not use this exclusively for the lessons. It does break down the tribes by region, but there is not much in the way of illustrations to go with the stories. It is also interesting to note that in the map, WV is completely left out of the country. It does not show up in the Norteast, Southeast, or Midwest region. It is as if there is a hole in the country where WV was.

I will use this for some crafts and maybe a few stories to supplement other resources, but it isn't something to be used on its own to teach. I am glad that I got it from the library and that I didn't buy this one.

Format: Paperback
This book is an absolutely wonderful alternative to most Native Anerican craft books. They make an honest attempt at showing as many of the Native tribes as possible, and never once do they suggest making a headdress. In fact, they even start the book off with a discussion about stereotypes and what the reality is.

I truly wish this book would become a staple in teaching about Natives, even if it's just used at Thanksgiving. It treats Narives as a people, not mascots. It's very, very refreshing.
