A fresh exploration of Native American art that positions the work within the broader context of North American art history

This landmark publication presents Native American art within the broader context of American art history, through an examination of notable works from a major private collection. The insightful texts provide a new evaluation of the art, culture, and daily life of numerous North American tribes, including Acoma, Apache, Cheyenne, Creek, Crow, Hopi-Twea, Kiowa, Lakota, Pomo, Seneca, Seminole, Tlingit, and Zuni, among others.
The works featured in this lavish volume span centuries, from the period prior to contact with European settlers through the early 20th century, and represent the extensive artistic achievements of culturally distinct indigenous peoples. Both known and unrecorded makers’ innovative visions are manifest in a wide variety of aesthetic forms and media—from painting, sculpture, and drawing to costume, ceramics, and baskets. Challenging traditional presentations of American Indian art, this publication situates and analyzes them alongside other North American artistic practices.
Gaylord Torrence is Fred and Virginia Merrill Senior Curator of American Indian Art at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.  Ned Blackhawk is professor of history and American studies, Yale University.  Sylvia Yount is Lawrence A. Fleischman Curator in Charge in the American Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
