Exploring Native American Culture through the Five Senses

November is Native American Heritage Month. Begin the celebration of the diverse cultures of the many groups of Native Americans with this exploration of the Woodland Indians of the eastern United States. Learn about the three major linguistic families of the Northeast Woodland tribes, and find a list of many of the tribes in the Northeast Culture area along with a map showing where they lived. Storytelling and music held important roles in Native American life. One of the suggested activities is develop your own story and tell it to the class. There are also clear instructions on how to make a paper longhouse.
