Discover the basics of the Native American ''kitchen, '' including utensils and cookery, as well as the many foods common to the Native American diet. Chapters on Native American games and musical instruments showcase a side of domestic Native American life rarely seen before, and a section on jewelry making will give you a head start on creating your own elaborate geometric beadwork designs.
