Presenting a multifaceted exploration of works produced by indigenous cultures throughout the Americas, this catalogue features excellent illustrations of more than 200 objects from the Museum's collections, including ceramic vessels and figurines, clothing, baskets, masks, paintings and other pieces dating from the 4th millennium B.C. to the late 20th century. Documentary photographs and detailed commentaries examining the cultural contexts of the highlighted works accompany twelve brief essays discussing such topics as the emergence of new museological attitudes toward the display and interpretation of ethnographic materials, the symbolic significance of feathers in Native American clothing, the status of gold in Aztec and Inka societies, and the spiritual traditions reflected in the work of contemporary Northwest Coast artists.
