Symmetrical tree paper cutting based on the paper silhouette art of the Pennsylvania Dutch.
Students learned about the Din’eh (Navajo) tribe from the Southwest. We learned how these Native American Indians create wool rugs by weaving “over under, over under...” on a structure called a loom. We created our own loom out of paper and used strips to weave designs in intricate patterns. We learned how a Din’eh woman passed on the skill of weaving to her daughters. We also learned about the many contributions of the Din’eh people including their service in WWII and as the inspiration for a secret code in their native language, earning them the name the “Navajo Code Talkers.”
