This unit deals with Iroquois culture of the past and the aspects of that culture which continue to exist in the longhouse tradition at the present time. The unit contains three sections: (1) an outline of the concept, Indian infant care, and the vocabulary, objectives, and materials; (2) a lesson plan on the mode of caring for infants in Native American culture, which includes instructional objectives, background information, materials, method, and evaluation; and (3) a similar lesson plan for the construction of a cradleboard. Each lesson plan has appropriate illustrations in pen-and-ink drawings. (AMH)
