Native Americans of the Southwest at the Library

Yesterday, Mikro attended a program on Native Peoples of the Southwest at the Croton Library. The kids got to handle lots of native american items, try red and white corn popcorn, and make a clay pot.

Mikro's favorite new fact: While travelling, some tribes used to put corn meal in their headbands, so that they could recycle the moisture in their sweat, using it to turn the cornmeal into a corn pudding.

Oddly enough, my vegetarian all-our-relations save-the-earth animal activist boy fell in love with the martin pelt, and wants me to get him one.
