The Blackfeet: Artists of the Northern Plains
By: Bob Scriver
Bob Scriver is a man of great and varied accomplishments: an internationally recognized Western sculptor, and accomplished cornet player with a master's degree in music, a well-know taxidermist, and with his father, Thaddeus Emery Scriver, a collector and preserver of a large segment of Blackfeet Indian material culture.
This book has become the classic reference for students of Blackfeet culture. It highlights the excellence of design and ornamentation that touched all phases of their lives. The Scriver Collection of Blackfeet Artifacts, presented here, is truly a source of information and inspiration to all who view it.
Dr. Philip Stepney, Director of the Provincial Museum of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada (where the collection now resides), observed that "the Scriver Blackfeet Collection is possibly the greatest single collection of historic Blackfeet material in existence." The artifacts are some of the finest examples of design, coloration and craftsmanship known today. The 1,500 pieces collected by the Scrivers and portrayed in this comprehensive volume represent all facets of Blackfeet life, including a sensitive and moving presentation of the aura and meaning of the ceremonial side of an earlier era.
