Treasures of the National Museum of the American Indian by Clara Sue Kidwell

Book Description

This Tiny Folio volume provides an impressive overview of the most significant collection of art by Native Americans anywhere in the world. Established by an act of Congress in 1989, the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) is dedicated to the preservation, study, and exhibition of the life, languages, literature, history, and the arts of Native Americans. The museum's collections span more than 10,000 years and-as this lavishly illustrated miniature volume demonstrates-include a multitude of fascinating objects, from ancient clay figurines to contemporary Indian paintings, from all over the Americas.
