Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1998 the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh opened the Alcoa Foundation Hall of American Indians. This catalog of the opening exhibit represents "five different visions of living in and with the natural world--those of the Hopi, Lakota, Tlingit, Iroquois, and urban Indians." Unlike some museum catalogs, this one includes significant descriptive text along with beautiful photographs that provide historical and cultural context for the art and other artifacts. Each section contains quotations from contemporary members of the represented groups, clarifying the continuity between traditional and contemporary life. The author is associate curator of anthropology at the Carnegie Museum, project director of the hall, and an expert in the field of Native American arts. Recommended for academic libraries with anthropology and museum catalog collections.--Faye Powell, Portland State Univ. Lib., OR
Booknews
This compendium focuses on four groups<-->the Hopi of the Southwest, the Tlingit of the Northwest, the Lakota of the Plains, and the Iroquois Nations of the Northeast; a short concluding chapter features urban Indians. Each page contains a mix of photos, captions, narrative text, and quotes from Indian songs, interviews, and writings. Two-hundred-plus photos of artifacts from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History's American Indian collections are featured, along with some 100 photos (both historical and contemporary) of the people who made and used the items. The whole comprises a visually interesting and information-rich<-->though somewhat disjointed<-->resource, lacking a single map or timeline. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Internet Book Watch
North South East West: American Indians and the Natural World is a beautiful coffee table art book full of lovely colored pictures with texts pertaining to cultures of four tribal entities - the Tlingit of the Northwest coast, the Hopi of the Southwest, the Iroquois Nations of the Northeast, and the Lakota and neighbors of the Great Plains - plus a varied section on the Urban Experience. This is a collection that demonstrates photo-journalism and art at its best. The richness of each tribal group's cultural heritage is vividly displayed in explicated examples. Designed to appeal to the senses, American Indians and the Natural World has maximum visual voltage. One is led effortlessly through the explanatory texts and narrative because of the flawless layout and harmonious design planning. It is accessible to both adult and teenage readers, a tribute to its creators and sponsors.
