Paper Bag Native American Vest Craft

The fourth Friday in September is Native American Day and the FreeKidsCrafts Team has designed this Paper Bag Native American Vest so everyone can have fun  learning more about Native Americans. This craft is also appropriate for Thanksgiving pageants.


Within the geographic boundaries of the United States there are more than 566 Native American tribes and Alaska Native groups that speak more than 250 languages. Each tribe has its own culture, history and identity.
