Editorial Reviews


This wide-ranging volume of essays is an indispensible guide to any art historian or curator of contemporary or modern art who needs to ground themselves in the issues around Native American art and its relation to mainstream Western art history.
National Gallery of Canada

A substantial contribution to contemporary art history and criticism.
Choice, 3/00

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

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this because it was required reading for a class. I thought it had a lot of good stuff in it. I cited this book a lot. Out of all the books I had to order for this class (and that list was unnecessarily long) I used this book the most, and I feel I got my money's worth out of it. I will keep this book for future reference, whereas the others will likely be sold back to a book store or donated. If I were teaching a class on Native American Art I would assign this book. I can't say that about many books I'm assigned.
