A Coloring Book of Contributions from the Original People of the Americas.
Fadden, Ray (Aren Akweks); And Others
Contributions made by Indians from North, South, and Central America are presented in the form of a coloring book. The scenes depict early agricultural, social, recreational, artistic, and medicinal practices of various Indian tribes which have since become a part of the life of peoples around the world. The coloring book, which can be used as a teaching guide to provide positive information on American Indians, carries a brief description with each scene which may relate to origin of particular innovations or describe how they are used today. Examples of contributions included are in general areas of sports (lacrosse, leg wrestling, archery), games (tops, bone buzz), homes (adobe, tee pee), musical instruments, agriculture (potatoes, rubber, corn, tobacco), crafts (baskets, pottery, jewelry), government (democratic councils), transportation (canoes, sled, snowshoes), and various outdoor recreation activities (hunting, camping). A longer description accompanies the illustration of a medicine man, explaining his place in the Indian community and his contribution to health care. (RS)
