Reviews

"If I could, I would urge all Americans to read this text, for as the title suggests, their perceptions of Native peoples may become as transformed in their understanding as the art itself has transformed through the span of time."--Jeremy W. H. Arnold, Religious Studies
--Jeremy W. H. Arnold "Religious Studies Review "
"This intriguing volume provides not only a record of a groundbreaking Peabody Essex Museum exhibition, but also a glimpse into an all-too-unknown world of American art. . . . This volume truly is a celebration of Native American art across the centuries."--A./I>--Choice "A. Wirkkala "
"Interspersed with the artwork are illuminating essays by critics, curators, and artists, and each piece is accompanied by a brief but informative blurb. Russell and her colleagues admirably achieve their goal of asserting the vibrant relevancy of Native American art in this stunning book that will appeal to a general audience, as well as art aficionados."--Publishers Weekly--Publishers Weekly
