The Kwakiutl Indians live at the edge of the Northwest coast in British Columbia, Oregon, and Washington.
The Kwakiutl Indian children do the same things any children do--play with each other, go to school, and help around the house. Many Kwakiutl children like to go hunting and fishing with their fathers. In the past,Indian kids had more chores and less time to play,just like early colonial children. But they did have dolls toys and games to play. Like many Native Americans,Kwakiutl mothers traditionally carried their babies in cradleboards ontheir backs--a custom which many American parents have adopted now.
