Canada is located in northern, North America and is bordered on the south by the United States. It is the world's second largest country by total area. Nature and the outdoors play an important part in many designs from Canada. Today we're featuring some of the tribal designs of the native people. First, is a foam totem featuring woodland animals and birds. Commonly carved from wood, totems feature animals especially woodland creatures. Then, we create a story hide - mimicking a leather hide but made from paper. We're making miniature friendship hides with authentic chalked designs. Next, we learn the meaning of inukshuk - it has to do with directions. Inukshuk is a stone landmark built by Inuit people since there are very few natural landmarks in the arctic. They can be used for navigation, as a point of reference, or sometimes as a marker for hunting or food. The last project is a foam pine cone to represent the evergreen forests of Canada. Evergreen Pine forests dominate the landscape of Canada with different varieties of cones - we're featuring the ponderosa pine cone. 2011/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
