Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It’s cause for celebration when a country known for doing wrong to its indigenous peoples does something right...objects of great beauty from the museum are mixed with historic prints and scenes from modern Indian culture. Most important, the book retells American history from the perspective of those who were here first." —TheWashington Post

"This book is a tribute to the long overdue acknowledgment of our rightful place in the Western Hemisphere." —Winds of Change

"A fascinating overview of Native American history and traditions...packed with stunning pictures..." —Bookpage

"Prodigious in scope and intimate in detail, this book, like the museum it celebrates, is a landmark." —Booklist

"An expressive, informative, and beautifully designed book...."—.Indian Country Today
