The Plains Indians

Projects about the Plains Indians
By: Marian Broida

We decided to take a break from Mystery of History and move on over to The Native Americans.  We were almost there anyways. I thought it would be a perfect time to study the Native Americans with Thanksgiving around the corner.
This book has some awesome crafts in it, with a story.

The Cheyenne

There tipi's were made out of buffalo hides.
This is our version of the tipi's with some decorations on it.

The Lakota

They harnessed a pair of tipi poles to a horse and between the poles is a platform made from willow saplings.
This is called a Travois.
