By Native Hands describes the history and context of Native American basketry with full-color photographs and scholarly text. Extraordinary baskets are brought to life in words and pictures, including such rare objects as a feathered Pomo blazing sun basket that took three years to create. This book presents baskets from every major geographic region of North America, with examples from the Chocktaw, Panamint Shoshone, Salish, Ojibwa, Cherokee and many others. By the turn of the nineteenth century, Catherine Marshall Gardiner had begun to collect woven baskets from Native American culture across the continent. Her collection, the first donation to the Lauren Rogers Museum of Arts in 1923, is widely known as one of the finest and most representative Native American basketry collections. Contributors include Stephen W.Cook, Betty J. Duggan, Dawn Glinsmann, William Ashley Harris, and Joyce Herold. Paperback.
