    UNIQUE CONTRIBUTIONS FROM SELF-TAUGHT ARTISTS

    The authors, collectors of American folk art, traveled the Navajo Nation. Beginning in 1983 and for the following ten years, they motored across New Mexico, Arizona and Utah to meet and visit with the 42 self-taught Native American folk artists whose works are featured in this brightly colorful volume. Among the artists represented in 90 full-color photographs are Mamie Deschille whose mixed media creche is crafted of sun-dried clay, cloth and found objects Leonard Willeto who fashioned flat doll-like figures of Indians clad in imaginary costumes and chicken feather headdresses Elsie Benally, whose 'Rooster Rider' is a study in whimsy and Ray Growler who creates life-like lambs, goats and sheep with real hides, fur and horns. The contemporary Navajo artists who are recording portions of their surroundings, their visions and experiences in these art forms are making a unique contribution to the galleries of indigenous American art.
