    • Native American Indians: Visual Arts, Drama, Dance, and Music
    • Visual Arts: Pottery
      • They first go and gather the clay.
      • Then they mix the clay and water to start to form the shape of the pot.
      • Once they have completed making the shape of the pot, they need to make the clay dry.
    • Visual Arts: Pottery con’td
      • They dry it using fire, but if they dry they leave it under the fire too long, they crack.
      • They then need to paint it and decorate the pot once it the clay has dried.
    • The result
    • Drama: Storytelling
      • Native Americans passed down their traditions and history through the way of storytelling.
      • Elders of the village would tell the stories at night around the village fire. Many times they acted out what the story was about for the children.
      • This was one of the many ways they also educated their children about their past.

    • Dance: The Sun Dance

      • When the America came to be, the government banned this dance.
      • Some of the Native Americans continued to do it anyway but they called it the rain dance to disguise it.
      • The governments laws have changed and they are allowed to continue the dance today.
    • Music: Native American Flutes
      • These flutes are generally handcrafted.
      • Before they make the flute out of wood, they must make sure the wood is of good quality.
      • Generally their flutes are carved from wood.
      • Once they have finished carving it, which is a long process, they treat the wood so it lasts.
      • It is not easy work, but the end result, if you can play, is priceless.
