Description
Summary:"The story of the Native peoples of the Great Plains - including the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Lakota, Shoshone, Blackfeet, Kiowa, Pawnee, Arikara, Gros Ventre, Assiniboine, Mandan, Hidatsa, and Crow tribes - is integral to the history and heritage of the American West. These buffalo hunting and horticultural people once dominated the vast open region of the Great Plains, west of the Mississippi River and east of the Rock Mountains, that stretches from present-day Canada to Texas." "The magnificent arts of Plains Indian people also had such spiritual underpinnings which, together with their historical and cultural contexts, can provide greater insight and appreciation of their tribal significances. Illustrated with more than 300 images of objects from the collections of the Plains Indian Museum and Whitney Gallery of Western Art of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, archival photographs of contemporary Native life, Memory and Vision: Arts, Cultures, and Lives of Plains Indian People is a comprehensive examination of the environments and historic forces that forged these cultures, and a celebration of their ongoing presence in our national society."--BOOK JACKET.
