The Enduring Kwakiutl PotlatchBook - 1991
The magnificent collection of art made by the Kwakiutl Indians of British Columbia, assembled in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for the American Museum of Natural History by Franz Boas and George Hunt, lies at the heart of this catalogue conceived to accompany an exhibition which will tour the US and Canada from 1992-1994. More than 100 pieces, selected from this collection and those of other museums, are illustrated in color. Extended captions incorporating information from members of the Kwakiutl community describe their history and acquisition, and over 80 historical photographs, as well as six essays, place the ceremonial regalia in context. 10 1/2 x10".
