Native American Tipi camp

Today was the day that everyone from our home education group gathered together to celebrate Native American culture. We have been studying together for 8 weeks. Each family had made one or more tipis and we set up camp outside.

Everyone had decorated their tipi in a different way and some were very authentic. The children wore their feather headdresses made in a previous session.

The children had another go with darts and spears.

Probably the best part of the day was tasting lots of Native American dishes including popcorn, "buffalo stew", roast duck and chicken, our pumpkin bread, cookies, berry pudding, bean sauce, and "whale blubber".
