The Native American culture is filled with vast pieces of history and several different crafting arts. There are so many different crafts to make around the Thanksgiving season when it comes to the Native American culture. Let’s take a look at Native American crafts from several different Indian groups.
The Eastern Woodland Indians
The Algonquian Indians use to hang dream catchers from cradles to protect their young babies. It was believe that the dream catcher would catch the bad dreams and only allow the good ones to pass through the web. Here are a few different crafts from the Eastern woodland people:
• Dream catchers were popular among all the Indians. They can be made several different ways; simple or complex. Young kids can make them as well as older kids and adults. They are truly beautiful crafts.
• Beaded necklaces were also popular among Eastern woodland women. They were generally given strings of beads on their birthdays; a new string was added every year until they turned 40. They were never seen in public without these necklaces.
