Adornment – jewelry, beadwork, and ceremonial regalia – is a defining element of cultural expression of North American Indians. This remarkable book presents hundreds of beautiful and distinctive objects of Indian adornment from prehistoric times to the present. The final chapter features a visit to a contemporary powwow, an important means by which Indian adornment continues to develop and flourish. Also included are diagrams related to jewelry techniques, maps, illustrated sidebars, and two sumptuous eight-page gatefolds highlighting, respectively, floral beadwork and Northwest Coast bracelets.
