Library Journal
Beadwork decoration, which spread throughout the Native American tribes of North America as a result of contact with European traders, is now considered a traditional craft. Dean, a bead worker and teacher of Choctaw descent, describes the materials and techniques of Native American beadwork as practiced over the past 230 years. The book contains projects demonstrating the use of various stitches, information on collecting traditional beadwork, and photographs of finished pieces from the collection of Charles Eagle Plume. A good working manual, this volume brings together much information on a popular topic and will be welcome in all crafts or folk art collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
