NAS 231 - Native American Arts and Cultures

3 Credits

Working mostly with locally harvested natural materials, students will explore the world of weaving and handwork as it related to early peoples of North America. While emphasis will be placed on working with Black Ash splint to weave a variety of styles of baskets, other projects such as porcupine quill work, birch work, and beadwork are possible, and will depend upon the students. Through handwork, students will have a better understanding of thought processes, Indigenous lifeways, and traditional teachings.
