Description
In the early 20th century, the Brooklyn Museum was among the first institutions to specialize in the acquisition and display of Native American art. Shown here in 318 color and black and white photographs and discussed in short texts, the museum's considerable holdings include a startling Osage horn headdress, a peyote rattle, a Kwakiutl Thunderbird transformation mask, festive Hopi dancing shoes, beautifully carved Zuni columns from a ruined church, Navajo war bonnets, and delightful Anasazi pitchers, as well as vintage images of Native Americans. The book's text chronicles the tireless and productive efforts of Stewart Culin, the museum's founding Curator of Ethnology.
