NativeTech: Native American Technology & Art


Because NativeTech is completely unfunded and built entirely of volunteer efforts, my greatest reward is the wonderful positive feedback from you, my internet community. I am very thankful to have had my work formally recognized with several web site awards:

Point/Lycos Top5% Lycos Top5% Most Popular Sites on the Web. NativeTech recieved a high grade in all three categories: Content: 90, Design: 90, Overall: 90 (All ratings are based on a scale from 0 - 100).Their Review: "Explore Native American art and its technology. No, this site does not deal with Native American computer artists, but rather the technological roots of ancient native art. Everything from beadwork to porcupine quills is fully analyzed with histories, techniques, and meaning in Native American life. You will also find a series of essays on Native American life by author Longtrail Snowbird along with poetry and stories by other Native Americans. Not satisfied with simply reading about Native art? Then post a message to the board or try it yourself with the help of numerous craft sources. Overall, an excellent and in-depth exploration of Native American art". (29 Jan 1998).
