Description

The native North Americans have a rich visual culture that goes back many hundreds, in some cases thousands, of years. From the nomadic hunters and gatherers of the Great Plains to the fisherman of the northwest seaboard and the pueblo-dwellers of the dry southwest, this text presents a variety of art forms, most of which survive today. After a short introduction covering the history and geographic spread of Native American tribes, the book features a collection of reproduced examples of the art of these diverse peoples, organised region by region.show more
