This is a good idea too, like wizzle's idea. I want to get the point of
diversity across, I want to tell where the art of different cultures comes from,
etc. It's hard to find information about Native Americans in general, tho. All
the stuff we have in the library is broken out by type of "Indian", ie:
Cheyenne, Ute, Cherokee, Navajo, etc. :(
