Introducing a new series. Things you were never taught in school about native Americans. I hope to impart some glimpse at false history and have some fun educating people as well. These will most likely be short and scattered randomly. I will do two today because I want to start the series off right. This will be all for today. Until next time!

Fact 41

Paintings

Mayan paintings from the ancient era found in the archaeological sites, such as Cacaxtla and Bonampak are some of the most refined paintings ever to come out of the Ancient Americas and the Ancient world. Besides the Mayans, other Native civilizations were also known for their wall paintings including but not limited to the Aztecs and the Navajos. The Navajo are the first people who developed the art of sand painting. The Lakota painted winter counts and other historical events to keep a recorded history.
