Rainbow Crow is one of the most beautiful books featured in our American History program: Indigenous People of North America and Hawai’i. In this Lenape legend, Crow goes to the sun and brings fire back to Earth to save all the animals from a bitter winter. As a go-along for this story, making Rainbow Crow as scratch art felt like the perfect pairing.
This is an example of how this program will give you art activities to do that focus on appreciation, not appropriation.
Thank you, Peggy, for sharing these pictures of your kids and the awesome art they made! We are so happy to hear they are enjoying learning about Native Americans with our program!
