M.ED. B.ED. B.THNOTE FROM HAWKEYE:Dear Craftsman:When contemplating, the composition of a book on native crafts, the visualizing of the many ways of compiling design impressions for a book, to beneft all seekers of native crafts, the following format and design was completed with much counseling and artistic critique.It was realized that most books on Native craft subject matter, have much information in writing, however, this written information leaves many craft-persons frustrated being unable to understanding all the new and poorly defned jargon with little or no visual illustrations.It was often contemplated, but now realized, that for many years I have been flling my diaries, on Native crafts, with diagrams and patterns for construction and vital information on obtaining important materials to make these creative masterpieces. This work has about 90% illustrations with visually clear and vital Construction details.Let the purchaser of this work, please understand that this book is not designed to be a literary masterpiece; it is a working manual for the crafts-person who desires to spend many fruitful and pleasant hours designing ones own masterpiece of North American Aboriginal Culture.Enjoy,Douglas Hawkeye StricklandCONTENTSVolume 2CHAPTER PAGE 1.
