TATTOO TRADITIONS OF NATIVE NORTH AMERICA: ANCIENT AND CONTEMPORARY EXPRESSIONS OF IDENTITY. Lars Krutak. LM Publishers, Arnhem, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 256 pp. with 280 ills. (115 col.). 29 x 25 cm. ISBN 9789491394096 In English.
Publisher's description: For thousands of years the Indigenous peoples of North America have produced astonishingly rich and diverse forms of tattooing. Long neglected by anthropologists and art historians, tattooing was a time-honored practice that expressed the patterns of tribal social organization and religion, while also channelling worlds inhabited by deities, spirits, and the ancestors. Tattoo Traditions of Native North America explores the many facets of indelible Indigenous body marking across every cultural region of North America. As the first book on the subject, it breaks new ground on one of the least-known mediums of Native American expressive culture that nearly disappeared from view in the twentieth century, until it was reborn in recent decades.
