Additional Details:
Some symbols used by Indians in decorating silverware, pottery, jewelry, rugs, etc. Before the coming of the White Man the Indians had no alphabet, but were able to express their meaning in a crude way by picture writing and symbols. Many of these symbols are still used by Indians in their ceremonials and in decorating their handicraft, such as silver jewelry, pottery, blankets and beadwork. Here are just a few of them and their meanings
