Native American
Games & Crafts
  
     Native American girls and boys played with toys and games
  that  helped  them learn  tribal traditions and  beliefs.   Their
  parents and grandparents made  small baskets,    pump drills,
  medicine pouches, god's eyes and toy canoes for the children
  to enjoy.

     They  also  taught  the  children  to  learn  the    basics   of
  crafting, both for  childhood enjoyment and for the necessity
  of daily tribal life.     Dolls were made by young and old alike,
  from materials such as cornhusks and animal skins. They also
  wove cornhusk mats, made toy tepees and bead rings.


     Although these days seem to be long past, Homestead Folk
  Toys hopes,  by  providing  a  wide  variety  of  crafts, toys and
  games,that Native American culture will be continually passed
  from one generation to the next, each recreating this colorful history.
