One side note.  Since I am not an expert on Native American History it was hard for me to find crafts and foods that are specific to the Nez Perce or Nimiipuu tribe which Kaya is a part of.  So instead I have chosen a crafts and recipes from a variety of tribes.  My thought is that this will give the girls a good overview of what life would have been like during Kaya’s time.  The information they are reading from the books each week will be specific to Kaya’s tribe and we can discuss any differences we see as we go along. My main intention with the crafts and snack are to highten the girls interest in learning about the different periods of history.  Hopefully the collection of crafts above will do just that!

Happy Homeschooling,

Jamin
