While I am going to Dia De Los Muertos on November 1st in Detroit Mexicantown, the rest of the month is going to have a different theme to it. November is Native American Heritage Month, so to honor it the Steamer's Trunk will be looking at the culture and art of the various indigenous peoples of America. Here's some of what to expect:
At the beginning of the month I'll be sharing my thoughts on Native American steampunk and my feelings on how it can be done without offense.
-The Mishomis Book by Edward Benton-Benai
-Native American Clothing: An Illustrated History by Theodore Brasser
-The Northwest Coast
-The Eastern Woodlands
Focus on Folkways
-Porcupine quill beadwork
-The many forms of moccassins
-Native American hairstyles and how to do the Hopi Squash Blossom hairstyle.
- Zuni Corn Cakes
- Ojibwe Baked Pumpkin
It's going to be a very special month- I know that I'm honored to be introducing you to the art and culture of these peoples- I hope you join me.
