    How to Do Native American Applique Work

    Native American beadwork and fabric appliques were important components of Native American visual arts, especially in the Great Lakes region and Northeast. Beadwork appliques were also very important among the Plains Indians as well. When Lewis and Clark and other Europeans introduced Italian seed and clay beads, which were already famous worldwide for their color, stability and beauty to the Native Americans in the early 19th century, they helped take an already-thriving art form into a new and vibrant visual art that created unique designs on fabric, buckskin and leather.
