Native American Font

I have a customer who wants some vinyl letting in a Native American looking font.

Preferably a free font or something I likely already have.

Any suggestions?

Hieroglyphics and curiously knotted strings. Indians, tomahawk not turban, were not much at written languages and even less at typography. Doubtful that there's any such thing as an indian looking type face.

Apropos of nothing; why is it that gringos refer to them as 'Native Americans' but Indians, feather not dot, refer to themselves as 'Indians'?

Cool website Jillbeans! Yeah Papyrus was one of the only fonts I had that I thought was close, ugh, but I hate it too.

I am... Indian (tomahawk).. not a lot thought so I guess I'm more "gringo." I used to always say "Indian" until people started thinking I was talking about "turban indians." Figured it would just be easier to you the PC term :p

My great grandmother was full Chippewa, which means exactly nothing to me other than I could score some sort of tribal largesse if I were so inclined. I'm not.

If I were doing something with an indian flavor I'd probably gravitate towards Hobo or may be Mister Earl.

Great suggestions. I ended up using Herculanum. It seemed to work well for what they needed.

Thanks for all of the help!

Much appreciated!
