Table of Contents
The Center for Indigenous Arts & Cultures is proud to present the sixth volume in our series. Each book is organized alphabetically like a telephone book. Looking up a particular artist takes only seconds. The purpose of the series is to introduce people to American Indian artists and to their fine arts.
This volume profiles over 1,500 American Indian basketmakers over the past two centuries from the Southwest, Great Basin and California. Baskets II will feature weavers of Northwest, Alaska, Western Canada, Plateau and Great Plains. Baskets III will feature weavers of the Great Lakes, Northeast, Eastern Canada, Atlantic Seaboard, Southeast, Gulf Coast, Mexico, Central and South America. We actually recorded over 5,000 Indian basketmakers and more keep coming weekly to our research center in Santa Fe.
This book was created with the cooperation of American Indian artists. Through personal interviews, archival research and artist surveys, information was collected in 25 fields, including the artist's tribe, clan, active years, type of baskets, lifespan, family relationships, education, teachers, students, awards, exhibitions, collections, forms, techniques, materials, favorite designs and publications. Many artists completed a personal statement, "I enjoy creating artwork, because..." Some wrote or narrated autobiographical statements.
