American Indian Tribal Art

I enjoy the Native American coloring books and coloring pages with the native traditional styles. American Indian Tribal designs are beautiful in bright or muted colors. The Dover stained glass coloring books and the ones with high-quality paper coloring pages are treasures to collect or give as fun gifts.

I hope you enjoy the Native American coloring books. They make wonderful gifts for children and senior citizens. Coloring truly is a therapeutic activity for all ages!

The Dreamcatchers remind me of the medicine wheels that were and are made by placing stones on the ground in the shape of a circle, some have rocks making a mandala design in the circle, (much like the Catchers). They are used for religious and spiritual ceremonies that hold great meaning.

Indian Tribes of North America

I Love Native American Coloring Books

I am not Native American, but I appreciate the different tribes' artistic expressions in multi-media. From the carved totem poles with black bears and bald eagles of the Northwest tribes, to beautifully crafted clay pottery and woven rugs of the Southwest Indians.

The Native American themed coloring books have an exceptional line drawing renditions that portray historical ancient cultures and traditional wardrobes. I get excited when I see excellent activity coloring books that are educational for kids and for adults, too.

How To Display Stained Glass Coloring Pages

The best way I have found to display the stained glass coloring pages, is to use solid clear plastic frames with suction cups on them. Place the finished designs in the plastic frames and stick them on a window. Kids love it when they can see their artwork on display. Or, you can showcase your children's art work in clear contact paper.

Warriors were not killers, they were protectors of their own people.

A Passion

The Southwestern designs are nice for decorative touches and accents in the home. When I was living in the tipi, I used the Southwestern designs for more of a Native American feel.

You see I really am passionate about the ancient Plains Indians lifestyle too, and lived in a Sioux style lodge. I am a full blooded Finn Lander.

List of North American Tribes and Nations

A list of the North American tribes and nations of interest to me:

  • Seminoles Nation of Oklahoma
  • Mohawk people of Oregon
  • The Six Nations of the Iroquois or Haudenosaunee
  • Crow Nation
  • Sioux Nation
  • The Cherokee Nation
  • Huron or Wyandot people
  • Southwestern and Northwestern Tribes
  • Haida
  • Chippewa
  • Zuni
  • Navajo
  • Blackfoot
  • Kiowa Indians of Oklahoma
  • Camanche
  • The Navahos
  • Aztecs

All of these tribes are well noted for their artistic culture, and traditional ways. I studied and did research on these tribes. Much of their art is functional and to be used for purposes other than designs, but are attractive and handmade by skilled crafts people.

North American Indian Chief in Headdress and Robe Drawing

Ancient North American Indians knew that animals made their lives easier in this world. There was a time where almost everything Indians used and ate came from animals. The bear was never killed in anger but was esteemed as a brother or a friend. The hunter believed that by creating an image of the animal, that it would please its spirit, and that the spirit of the animal would live forever.

  • For Example, A bear spirit mask was made of wood and bear fur, and the eyes and teeth were inlays of sea shells, bones or stones. Brilliant colors were typically used for a powerful animal mask.

I love the native costumes with fringed deerskin leathers and suede, beautifully beaded designs and Bald Eagle feathers. This is a colorful dancer image with painted face, and artfully done. A fine example of how you might want to color some line drawings yourself.

Just below is a free Pow Wow Dancer coloring page of this colorful Native American dancing in a traditional wardrobe.

Totem Pole Coloring Example

All of my life I have enjoyed seeing this Totem Pole. This is a photo of the totem after having been restored and given a fresh colorful coat of paints. I like the bright colors of red, golden yellow, green, and white with the color black that makes the brighter colors stand out.

If you are coloring a totem pole coloring page then this is an excellent example. This is a photo from my private collection.

Indian Life in Pre-Columbian North America Coloring Book

Indian Life in Pre-Columbian North America Coloring Book (Dover History Coloring Book)

This exceptional Indian Life in Pre-Columbian North America book by Dover History Coloring Books is one that I have especially enjoyed when I lived in a Native American Sioux style lodge. Let me tell you, that was a great experience for me on many different levels. And, that is how I feel about this activity book. It took me back in time to an era before Columbus came to what we know as the United States of America.

In a way I wish the native people had not been disturbed and that they could have kept the territories that the different tribes had. Things would have much different for the indigenous people, life would have remained simpler, It was a hard life for them during harsh winters, but I believe they would have evolved greatly on their own. But the technology and advancements many have been small in comparison to what it is today.

Thank You For Visiting My Hub

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on August 06, 2017:

Peggy, I'm glad I saw that you has stopped by for a visit 5 months ago. My apology. I lived in a tipi lodge for the better part of a year at my former summer place in ND. It always felt much like a vacation but it was a lot of work at times like any summer place.

I hope you have been enjoying summer. We had large hail here yesterday for about 3 minutes and the setting sun was shining, way cool and cooling.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 01, 2017:

Coloring books seem to be really gaining in popularity for adults. It has always been a fun child activity. Those coloring examples are truly beautiful as is your photo of that newly painted totem pole.

You mentioned living in a Native American Sioux style lodge. Were you on vacation? How long did you live there?

Robert Sacchi on October 27, 2016:

Thank you, glad you like my creative writing.

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on October 27, 2016:

Richard, thanks for visiting, good to read your comment. And, I am enjoying your creative writings. - Kudos!

Yes, the artwork is beautiful and meaningful. I enjoyed reading this article. Thank you.

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on March 28, 2016:

Thank you, Peg. Coloring is good for all ages, as it is a great stress reducer and that is important for people with Alzheimer's, and anyone. I've been intending to pick up some new coloring books for us ladies. - Kudos!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 04, 2016:

I learned from a cousin of mine that in some Alzheimer residence units the patients are encouraged to color. That is probably something most everyone enjoys and would take them back to their childhood days. Long term memories are often more retrievable than the short term ones. Enjoyed reading this again and will share.

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on February 11, 2016:

Au fait, thank you. Its always good to see your comments. I appreciate you taking the time to visit. Hope all is well for you and your loved ones.

C E Clark from North Texas on January 30, 2016:

These coloring pages look great! I've always loved the dream catchers and have one hanging below my rearview mirror in my car. Great way to keep children occupied. I still like to color, though I get carried away often times with shading,etc., which is a little more complicated, but I find it can be very therapeutic.

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on December 18, 2015:

I agree, Thelma. My grandchildren have gotten plenty of coloring books over the years as gifts. Merry Christmas m'dear.

Thelma Alberts from Germany on December 06, 2015:

Thank you so much for visiting and sharing.

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on April 05, 2015:

As with most of us, our family's roots are Native American to an extent ...and I do not know exactly to what extent I just know my Momma always said we are part Cherokee. I do believe it is so ....the power of nature and the forces at work therein leave no doubt how connected we are to the earth. Alas I digress.

I do love to color Native American coloring pages...used to use them in Social Studies when I taught in South Dakota.

Thanks for sharing...off to find some pages to color.

Angels are on the way Voted up++++ and shared

I think I may have had some native American coloring books as a child, but you have made me see them in a new light. I loved your pictures. Voted up+

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 25, 2015:

Hi Susie,

I wish you would tell us the story of your living in a teepee. Certainly sounds interesting. We should all use resources properly whether rich or poor.

Fay Favored from USA on March 25, 2015:

I've always enjoyed this type of activity mainly because you can use so many brilliant colors. A good resource for classroom activity or follow up to a teaching unit.

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on March 25, 2015:

Peggy, poor people will use all the resources they have to survive. It is amazing to me what hardships in life the ancient Native Americans endured. Maybe the teepee living story will become a hub someday.

Thank you!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 25, 2015:

What a fun hobby and educational as well. I like the fact that when Native Americans killed an animal, they used all parts of it and honored the animal's spirit. Living in a teepee...you must tell us more! Up votes and sharing.

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on March 24, 2015:

Shyron, thank you for sharing the ancestral bloodlines. Cool!

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on March 23, 2015:

Sandy, I hope we never get too old to color pages. It is therapeutic for seniors to color as well as for their grandchildren.

Thanks for visiting!

Susie Lehto (author) from Minnesota on March 23, 2015:

Sage, that makes two of us big kids at heart. That is awesome that you color with your children, they will always remember that companionship of coloring with their Mom.

Nice to hear from you, BTW. - Thank you!

Sandy Mertens from Wisconsin, USA on March 23, 2015:

This has always been an interesting subject and I still love to color, even if I am not a kid.

Mackenzie Sage Wright on March 23, 2015:

I'm a big kid-- when I print out coloring pages for the kids I have to print a copy for myself and sit there and color with them. Great pages here, thanks for sharing!

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 21, 2015:

You lived in a teepee? How awesome is that? These coloring page ideas are a good idea on how to add some variety and cultural education to kids' leisure activities. It can be a fun segue to other discussions.

Jackie, I totally agree with you 100%. Coloring educational pages with kids is a smart way to teach them about the North American Indian cultures while having fun.

Thank you so much for stopping by my new hub. - Kudos.

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on March 21, 2015:

Perfect coloring books for children! Learn while they have fun and they don't even realize it! I wouldn't mind coloring a few of these and what better way than buying them for a child and joining them in the fun; discussing as we go!
