Publisher’s Blurb:

The tipi, the feather headdress and the pipe of peace: such are the cliches representatives of a culture often confined to anecdotal notice for its ‘crafts’. This volume takes us beyond all that. Archaeology, costume, weaving, pottery, basket making, painting and sculpture are all addressed here. The sculptural quality of the articles presented, their purity of line and expressive intensity, command the status of art. Penney’s vivid account defines their spiritual and symbolic import.

Colour reproductions from the greatest US collections of Amerindian art are accompanied by period black and white photographs situating the various Indian cultures in their historic contexts.
