Summary

Indian people settled in climates that ranged from the Arctic, where temperatures sometimes drop lower than 50 degrees below zero, to the Amazon Basin, where the weather is hot and rainy. American Indians adapted to these challenges by inventing houses and clothing that were uniquely suited to the climates where they lived, and they developed art that reflected these surroundings. Buildings, Clothing, and Art covers the many contributions that American Indians have made in these areas. It describes how the Inuit built igloos, the American Indians in the Northwest built plank homes, the American Indians in the Northeast built wigwams, the Iroquois and the Huron in the Northeast built longhouses, the Plains Indians built tipis, and more.
