Thinking about a form of communication used between tribes that used different oral languages and most not having written languages can lead to a discussion of communication in our global community. What can we learn from the Native Americans?

What aspects of our modern society have a similar bridge with communication? While I think younger children will be fascinated to simply learn the signs I know I did as a child , older students can take it further by considering some of those deeper questions related to communication in a global society.

In my work I had to interact with tribal members quite often. One day I met an old man of the tribe named Louie Yellow Wolf who couldn't hear much anymore. We had trouble communicating as he couldn't read lips.

I found this book at a used book store in Kalispell, Montana and within a week or two was able to use the signs found in the book fairly well.

Indian sign is much more simple than modern sign language for the hearing and speech impaired in use today and can be learned quite easily. The next time me and the old man met up I said "hello Yellow Wolf" to him in Indian sign language.


His eyes lit up. And we "talked sign" for over an hour.

He even taught me some slang in sign not found in this book and before long other more elder members of the tribe would come along and get a kick out of watching this novice white guy try using sign. They freely corrected me when I messed up and I can still hear those old men laughing and looking at each other with amusement but they told me in sign talk they were proud of me for learning their unspoken language. Of course most of them spoke english but loved to use the vanishing language.

Using sign can come in handy when you want to be quiet I. I was happy that site offers this unique book and highly reccomend it. The order and instruction are clear and easy to follow even without illustrations. However, I was disappointed that common words or synonyms for some basic vocabulary such as 'please', 'thank you', and 'sorry' and basic directions like 'left', 'right', 'straight' or cardinal directions,or other synonyms were not listed anywhere in the book.

The illustrations were well portrayed.

For instance, the sign for 'wolf' is the same for spy, cunning, and Pawnee. Overall I consider this a good way to be introduced to the Native sign language. I like the historical references and photos that are featured in the book. My only complaint is that it is sometimes hard to tell if you're actually doing the sign correctly based upon the guide photos. Also, the book was a little small. Either way, it's a good download and a good beginner look into Native American Sign Language.

One person found this helpful.

This is not for children. This will get you started and take you far enough to actually sign. It's pages of paperback with simple drawings and further description in writing for each sign drawn.

There are many more written descriptions in alphabetical order. This was first copyrighted in and is interesting today. There is also information on pictography, a small section on smoke signals and the history of sign language. There are examples of sentence formation, and some prewritten stories for you to try your skills on.Vasishta, J.

Kathleen Barbie marked it as to-read Jun 28, Valuable Consideration.

Plains Indians from different tribes speaking different languages were nevertheless able to communicate facts and feelings of considerable complexity when they met.

With this book, you will find it simple to use this language, which the author learned in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, principally from Sioux Indians in Wyoming. Aug 22, Gaile rated it it was amazing Shelves: The words are then used in sample sentences.
