This volume celebrates the work of distinguished senior artist Allan Houser and five contemporary Native American artists awarded the second biennial Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art. Essays discuss each of the artists, and colour illustrations present the best of their work. A variety of media, styles, and subjects demonstrates the versatility of Native American artists in 2002. From intense drawings to otherworldly ivorycarvings, the pieces featured represent a broad geographic and emotional range. Some evoke images and memories from a uniquely Native American experience, giving a new twist to familiar themes, often with sharp wit, such as Teresa Marshall's Bering Strait Jacket.
