Abstract

This project is being submitted as part of the requirements for ARTH 3270, Native North American Art. Native American 2-Dimensional design is simple in nature visually. However, the symbolism behind them is complex. Every detail, down to the color choice is thought out and planned in order to get a very distinct message across. Whether that be spiritual or social, there is meaning behind it all. These symbols and their meanings, while they may seem to be outdated, have followed us from generation to generation and still have significance now.
