From the Jacket:
The Center for Indigenous Arts & Cultures is proud to present the fifth volume in our series. Each book is organized alphabetically like a telephone book. Looking up a particular artist takes only seconds. The purpose of the series is to introduce people to American Indian artists and to their fine arts.
This volume profiles over 1,200 Indian jewelers from all tribes over the past two centuries. The text is illustrated with over 2,000 photographs. We actually recorded over 5,000 Indian jewelers and more keep coming weekly to our research center in Santa Fe. To be fair, we decided to produce three volumes and to go forward with the best developed and best illustrated 1,200 profiles for American Indian Jewelry I.
