Five projects passed on through generations of Native Americans. Projects include: Tag Bag - Treasured items were often carried in animal skins bags. This bag also doubles as a "memo" pad. Wampum Necklace - The color of the beads symbolized different things: White for health, peace and riches; purple for sympathy and sorrow; dark purple was the most valuable. Wampum beads were also traded as currency. Owner Stick - When Native American families gathered firewood or food; they marked the pile they had collected with an owner, or possession, stick. Cork Painting - Native Americans developed many characteristic designs, which covered their homes and clothing. Cork reminds us of the textured rawhide surfaces used in traditional Native American painting. Navajo Hogan Box - The Navajo Hogan is an eight-sided structure made of logs. The female Hogan is the family home where children are raised. A smaller structure where men meet is the male Hogan. The door of the Hogan always faces east to meet the rising sun. 05/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
