The Lenape made small bags to carry special personal items in.  Follow the instructions and make your own.

CORN HUSK DOLL ACTIVITY

 

To make things for fun, the Lenape used what they had available.  Cornhusk dolls were made by boys and girls and never had a face to deter children from being vain. 

BURDEN BASKET ACTIVITY

The Lenape wove large baskets, and used them to carry firewood and foods that they had gathered.  The baskets hung on their backs from a band that went around the forehead or over the shoulders.  This band was called a tumpline.

SHUTTLECOCK ACTIVITY

Indians of the Eastern Woodlands played games with what they had around them.  Simple games of "aim and toss" were played with the shuttlecock.
