Overview

Includes complete illustrated instructions on all of the basics of leather, bone and feather crafts of the American Indian. This book was written in answer to numerous requests for a "how to do it" book that would not only cover the basics of the traditional crafts of the American Indian, but would also present illustrated step-by-step instructions on how to do those crafts. There are a number of good books available that present hundreds of items of Indian craft but they fail to give good directions on how to go about constructing the items pictured and in many cases only those crafters who already know how to make them find the books of value.

The book is written so that you need only read the specific section that you are interested in. Each project was written independent of all the others and will allow you to make any one item without reading the total book. Projects described include Traditional Indian Crafts with Bone such as the Bear Claw Necklace, Imitation Bone Hairpipe Breastplate, Hairpipe Breastplate, Sioux Dancing Choker, Ermine Tail Choker, Winnebago Tube and Abalone Choker, Tube Style Choker, Claw and Hairpipe Choker, Single Claw and Tube Choker, and Mountain Man Choker. Traditional Indian Crafts with Leather include the Medicine Pouch Necklace, Small Leather Pouch, Quilled Medicine Wheels, and Dance Bell Set. Traditional Indian Crafts with Feathers include the Feathered Dance Whistle, Single or "Dancing" Feather, Quilled Single or "Dancing" Feather, Fancy Dance Bustle and the beautiful Double-Trailer Warbonnet.

In addition, craft techniques described include porcupine quill wrapping, shaping feathers, how to size projects, using imitation sinew, how to antiquebone, obtaining a "finished" look and hints on personalizing your projects.

This book is designed so that even the beginning craftsman can create authentic Indian crafts with ease and learn the basic techniques while doing so!
