Native American History

This week students are learning how to identify Native American symbols. Recognising them in artworks such as totem poles and being able to translate theses symbols into legends and stories that represented indigenous people who lived out in the open.

Students were challenged to draw comparisons between Indigenous NZ Maori, Australian Aboriginal and Native American symbols and research why the symbols were used.

How many can you identify?
