    Indian Beadwork Crafts

    Native Americans used beads in crafts approximately 8,000 years before Europeans came to North America, though with the arrival of the Europeans in the 15th century came glass beads from Venice. In their dealings with Native Americans, European settlers used beads, which remained legal tender in the 13 colonies until the mid-1700s. Glass beads are now the predominant type of bead used in Indian beadwork.
