The British Museum encyclopedia of native North America

Front Cover
Indiana University Press, 1999 - Art - 213 pages
Green (director of the American Indian Program, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution) and Fernandez (acting First Nations officer at the Ontario Arts Council) present about 200 alphabetically-arranged entries that illuminate how indigenous North Americans lived in the past and how they live now. Together with a wealth of stories, songs, and first-hand renderings of events, they include biographies of leaders, accounts of social problems, explanations of ceremonials, and descriptions of origin stories. Although most of the artifacts portrayed come from the British Museum, they are supplemented with other important examples from American collections.
