Art First Nations: Tradition and Innovation. Student Workbook 2.
Zuk, W. M.; Bergland, D. L.
This student workbook, a companion to a comprehensive teacher's guide and 20 laminated art reproductions, is part of an instructional resource designed to assist teachers in incorporating Native American studies into the elementary art program and general curriculum. It highlights visual art which is actively being innovated by aboriginal artists throughout North America and focuses on ways important cultural beliefs and values are being renewed through visual expression. These draw on a comparative picture method to show relationships between tradition and innovation by featuring both a traditional and an innovative artist, and encouraging examination of the similarities and differences in those cultures and artworks. Artists and cultures examined are: Unit 1: Southwest, (1) Helen Hardin (Santa Clara Pueblo) and Anonymous (Hopi) and (2) Conrad House (Navajo/Oneida) and Anonymous (Anasazi); Unit 2: Arctic, (1) Edward Kiokan (Eskimo) and Anonymous (Eskimo) and (2) Manasie Akpaliapik (Inuit) and Anonymous (Dorset); Unit 3: Eastern & Northern Woodlands, (1) Jackson Beardy (Woodland Cree) and Anonymous (Ojibway) and (2) Daphne Odjig and Anonymous (Potawatomi/Odawa); Unit 4: Plains, (1) Blackbear Bosin (Kiowa/Comanche) and Anonymous (Cheyenne) and (2) Edward Poitras (Metis) and Anonymous (Arapaho); and Unit 5: Northwest Coast, (1) Roy Henry Vickers and Anonymous (Tsimshian) and (2) Bill Reid and Anonymous (Haida). The student workbook includes a culture map, time lines, small color art reproductions, culture descriptions, artist biographies, and art study worksheets for each module of the five units. (MM)
