Exploring the ways in which North American peoples have been depicted in art by themselves and by others since the early 19th century, this catalogue documents more than 100 diverse objects that include cradleboards, beaded bags, painted hides and other tribal artifacts; paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and photographs by such Euro-American artists as George Catlin, Karl Bodmer and Frederic Remington; commercial signs, film posters and other popular culture objects; and works by 17 contemporary Native American artists, among them Kay WalkingStick, Alex Janvier and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith. Five essays include discussions of the central role of spirituality in traditional Native American art, the character and function of Indian-related images by non-Native artists, the impact of mass media on perceptions of Indians and the exploration of cultural identity by contemporary Native artists.
