You know what's great about summer time? The pow wows that will be going on almost everywhere. I love Native American culture, and I also enjoy reading about their beliefs and how they believe in spirits and giving back to mother earth. This linked lesson will show you how to draw an Indian, step by step. I like the way this cute drawing of an Indian came out, and I also love how simple this tutorial was to follow. If you like drawing cowboys and Indians, you will love this lesson too.
