LOST AND FOUND TRADITIONS Native American Art 1965-1985, Coe, Ralph T.
7 Coe, Ralph T. LOST AND FOUND TRADITIONS Native American Art 1965-1985
Vancouver, B. C. Douglas & Mcintyre 1988 0888946252 / 9780888946256 First Edition Softcover Very Good 
Ex-library book, but still in quite good condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Page are clean and tight, profusely illustrated in b/w and colour. Light edgewear and some rough edges to laminate on covers, a little soiling to outer edge of pages. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 288 pages; From Publishers Weekly: Contemporary American Indian arts and crafts are sometimes dismissed as a pale reflection of a once-great art form. Coe, who spent eight years crisscrossing North America, meeting Indian artists and collecting their works, disproves this viewpoint. A rich legacy of tribal tradition lives on in modern textiles, masks, carvings, jewelry and sacred objects, as revealed in the 400 artworks reproduced in this catalogue of a touring exhibition. When a Makah Indian in Washington State carves a painted box in the shape of a wolf's head, he rediscovers an age-old form and, in so doing, experiences a sense of pride and shared values. Visiting scores of tribes, Coe discovered an art community, a loose network of weavers, craft classes, singers, carvers. Examples in this revelatory volume range from a Pueblo dance-skirt decorated with mystical life symbols to a Cheyenne bird-feather fan whose iridescent colors mirror the peyote ceremony.... (*Note: due to heavy weight, there will be an addt'l shipping charge to most locations) [1,280]

These men had died defending their homes and families, and they too deserved recognition....Concise, well-written, and respectful of Cheyenne and Lakota cultural practices, this book is an essential contribution to our understanding of how the Cheyennes and Lakotas waged the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

Interior pages clean and tight, slight age tanning to page edges. 188 pages. Basil Johnston's rollicking tales about life on a modern Indian reserve put Moose Meat Point on the map of Canadian comedy along with Stephen Leacock's Mariposa and Charlie Farquharson's Parry Sound. ; 8vo; MOOSE MEAT AND WILD RICE is a unique book, a comic collection by a contemporary Ojibway author, who turns his talents to a mischievous (but never malicious) depiction of present-day Indians and Indian-White relations, with the gentle satire cutting both ways. Light, but nevertheless realistic, told as fiction but based in fact, the escapades undertaken by the populace of Moose Meat Point Reserve encompass havoc and hilarity, prejudice and pretence.

SHADOW CATCHER The Life and Work of Edward S. Curtis, Lawlor, Laurie
18 Lawlor, Laurie SHADOW CATCHER The Life and Work of Edward S. Curtis
Douglas & McIntyre 1994 1550542354 / 9781550542356 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Ex-library book, but still in very good condition. Pages are clean and tight. Laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Moderate scuffing to laminate on jacket, light wear at corners and a little loosening to edges of laminate. B/w photos; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Lawlor (Addie Across the Prairie) engagingly chronicles the life and work of photographer-ethnologist Edward S. Curtis (1868- 1952) , perhaps best known for his 20-volume The North American Indian, a collection of photographs and written histories of the tribes he spent more than 30 years studying. According to Lawlor, Curtis sacrificed much for his determination to record a culture he believed to be on the brink of extinction. The lively text focuses on his struggles, from his beginnings as a studio photographer in 1890s Seattle to his neverending quest for financial support from the likes of Teddy Roosevelt and J. P. Morgan, to his patience in winning the trust of the people he sought to memorialize. Although openly admiring, Lawlor does not shy away from more problematic aspects of Curtis's career-she acknowledges that he staged events for the camera and posed his subjects, and that his obsession with his mission impoverished and eventually unraveled his family. The exquisitely designed book (printed in sepia on cream paper) contains scores of Curtis's haunting photographs, as well as portraits of Curtis and his family. [691]
