Little Yum-Yum gets started on making the relevant holes.

Once he was satisfied with his paintwork, Max stuck on some silver stars.

A little sewing,

followed by some bead work.

Now for the extra stuff included,

such as finding tomahawks, and shooting arrows,

smoke signals and drawing a buffalo.

Time to draw,

followed by the story of the Dream Catcher.

Ever tried Journey Cakes before? We haven’t but we may try it one day.

Last but not least, how to make a Native American Headband.

After cutting the strips for him, Max coloured them in.

He added a few feathers,

but kept the rest for this. I could be wrong, but I think it’s a Go Jetters character on an island.

Later, he changed his mind and added the remaining feathers to his Headband.

The Dream Catcher now hangs above his bed to catch all of his good dreams, and to get rid of the bad ones.

    Those musk oxen-looking beasts must be standing in for American bison, the food and clothes store for the Plains Indian. When Max is big and exploring his world, i hope he takes a little trip to this part of the country (I live on the Plains of Western Nebraska), and learn more about these people supplanted by Anglos moving West.
    And much more!

      Thanks for the link! I will definitely encourage him to. From my side we have Arawak Indian ancestors; from his father’s side, another Native American tribe. ❤
