A Photographic Essay of Apache Children in Early Times, Volume 2-Part C.
Thompson, Doris; Jacobs, Ben
As part of a series of guides designed for instruction of American Indian children and youth, this resource guide constitutes a pictorial essay on life of the Apache child from 1880 to the early 20th century. Each of the 12 photographs is accompanied by an historical narrative which describes one or more cultural aspects of Apache childhood. Questions designed to elicit comparison of past and present cultures follow each narrative explanation. Topics covered via photograph and historical narrative are: (1) Baby and Baby Carrier (practicality and security); (2) Early Childhood (dress and custom); (3) Parent and Child (emotional relationship); (4) Girls at Play (play as a learning device); (5) Boys and Girls at Play (imitation of adult activities); (6) Boys at Play (competitive play in preparation for hunting and raiding participation); (7) Boys in Camp (evidence of a white captive well treated by the Apache); (8) Evening in Camp (storytelling); (9) Girls--Duties and Education (development of physical endurance for the hard work of an adult Indian woman); (10) Girls--Wild Food Gathering (familiarity with the variety of edible plants); (11) Boys--Toughening and Training (preparation for the life of hunter, raider, and warrior); (12) Youth (differences between male and female roles).
