Dancing Colors Paths of Native American Women
By: C.J. Brafford and Laine Thom
To the American Indian, there is no distinction between art and life or between what is beautiful and what is functional. Native American women created the clothing, tipis, household implements, and jewelry that define their world.
In Dancing Colors we see how their spiritual involvement and superb artistry transformed the everyday into timeless treasure. Beautiful, full-color photographs and fascinating stories present an unforgettable blending of legend and art.
Forty of the pieces are from the magnificent David T. Vernon Collection permanently on display at the Colter Bay Indian Arts Museum in Grand Teton National Park. Sixty additional works are from the San Diego Museum of Man. C.J. Brafford, curator at the Colter Bay Indian Arts Museum, has provided lyrical introductions connecting the legends with life and art. Another specialist in native American art, Laine Thom, provides fascinating details and background information in the captions that accompany each photograph. The legends, photographs, and excellent commentary blend into a beautiful and informative book about the harmony of life and art in native American culture.
