Designed to help tribal girls develop good grooming habits, the unit focuses on being natural and on practicing good health habits. Attention is given to such habits as bathing, care of complexion and hair, good posture, and care of the teeth and gums. The use of makeup is deemphasized. To relate the unit to pride in Indianness, bathing customs prior to the coming of the white man can be stressed. Also, the ceremonials in which Zuni women carried pottery on their heads can be related to the concept of good posture. The activity sheets in the girls' materials can be considered commitment sheets which the girls can use to make promises to themselves regarding good grooming practices. Narrative and activity sections are included for girls from 9 to 11, 12 to 14, and 15 to 18 years old. The information on acne may be used for girls 12 to 18 years old. The leaders' guide identifies the concepts to be taught, states the objectives, and outlines learning experiences to be used in the unit. (Author/CM)
