and the one-step: they sing chants and
the roles from Faust. One generation
makes primitive blankets, baskets and
moccasins; the next makes modern
clothing and other equally useful
things, too, and in addition can em
broider silks, weave fine laces, cook
fancy dishes or play a piano. The
tomtom and piano are In many fami
