As an artist, as a member of the Ioway tribe, and as an archaeologist, I found this book invaluable in my research. The archaeological antecedents of the Ioway were the Oneota, a Mississippian manifestation in the upper Mississippi River drainage, and there are a lot of dots I was able to connect between our traditions and the explorations by the authors. Wonderful papers, clearly written, and with very helpful b/w illustrations. Well-done!
