From intro -

These Indian boys and girls live in New Mexico and Arizona.  Some live in villages called Pueblos near the great river, Rio Grand.  Some live in round houses called hogans, far out in the desert, and others live in pine forests high in the mountains.

 

There are many things for little Indians to do which are very interesting and lots of fun.  They care for baby lambs, ride ponies, hunt for berries and pine nuts in the woods.  Girls help their mothers bake bread and cookies in outdoor ovens, or make clay birds, animals, and small pots which their mothers fire into pottery.

 

Boys help their fathers make drums and bows and arrows to be used in Indian dances, and they go hunting and fishing.  They sing and dance with the grown-ups in the exciting ceremonies and Feast Day celebrations of their village or tribe, and have very special costumes to wear for the dances.

 

Look at the wonderful world in which Indian children in the Southwest laugh and play and work every day!
