Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This lavishly illustrated collection of essays on Native American and Hawaiian quilters and quilting had its beginnings in an exhibit of the same name held at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian and touring through the year 2001. Until recently, the study of native quilting traditions was largely ignored by ethnographers, who concentrated their attention on aspects of Native American culture thought to be less influenced by contact with European culture. It is only in recent decades that quilting has been recognized as an important part of Native American and Hawaiian cultures. Photographs of 180 quilts along with 96 fascinating documentary photographs are included. Highly recommended for academic and large public library collections.

I must admit that until picking up this book, I had no idea that quilting was such an integral part of Native American culture. The little history we recieve on Native Americans had never touched on the power of quilts even within today's Native communities. MacDowell and Dewhurst have painted a comprehensive illustration of not only the beauty of Native quilting, but also the social importance of quilts as records and protectors of Native culture. The photographs and stories presented in this book are so eloquently presented that I could not put the book down. I leave it on my coffee table and have not ceased to attract the attention of every visitor.

I look for the cultural study on quilt and this book indeeds offers some precious opions.
It's a pity that it emphasizes too much on the Hawaiian indigenous materials. But the study of the functions of quilt (not just in Hawaii) is very convincing.

Quilts from many Native American traditions. Beautiful quilts with stories about the quilters and quilt makers. The articles are written mainly by Native people, so the quilts are not seen as artifacts, but as living parts of the community, as expressions of beauty and culture, and sometimes as a means of cultural survival. I have used this book as a reference in teaching about Native quilting as part of an American Quilting Traditions course that I teach.
