A substantial contribution to contemporary art history and criticism.
This book is by far the finest compendium of a diverse and timely range of discourses on 20th century Native North American art and art history. Rushing has assembled a first-rate group of scholars and artists who consider issues which range from the historical to the theoretical to the spiritual to the aesthetic, and which encompass regions from the Canadian arctic to the desert southwest. This lively volume is a must for all practitioners, historians, and students of Native North American art.
Janet Catherine Berlo, Professor of Art History, University of Rochester
