String Games are a winter storytelling activity that kids of all ages enjoy. The string games are stories that you act out in patterns by intertwining hand movements with a string. Some of the hand movements are easily mastered, while others require skill and patience to learn. This book will provide you with the directions and illustrations you need to start having winter fun.
A few of the string patterns include: K'aalogii (Butterfly), Atsa' (Golden Eagle), Ts'aa' (Ceremonial Basket), Diyogi (rug), and Dilyehe (Seven Sisters).
