Publish date:

People have been making pottery for thousands of years, first for utilitarian purposes, then for decoration. Sometimes the pottery combines both. Read about the Pueblo Indians in the Southwestern United States and learn about the pottery they made. The decorations on the pottery had special meaning that reflected the environment these Indians inhabited. Sometimes the decorations told stories that explained the ancient myths of the Pueblos and their ancestors. After learning about the special symbols on Pueblo pottery, you can design your own pot and use the symbols to tell your own pottery story.
