Paints 

Mintaka Kwe from the Miinawaa Language Society Message # 7075

Instead of buying makeup one may use the following roots for paints for pow-wows:

Blood root, (Sanguinaria officinalis) gives a red color.

Maple bark (boiled) gives a blue color.

Soot and bear fat gives a black color.

Chalk and bear fat gives a white color.

Boiled chokecherry gives ochre.

Elderberry (smabucus nigra) Gives deep purple.

Cattail pollen and bear fat gives yellow.

Creeping fern pollen and bear fat gives bright yellow. Baamapii

[Use cold creams because these paints are hard to wash off.]
