Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This comprehensive, generously illustrated survey of the Native arts of the Pacific Northwest Coast spans the region from Puget Sound to Alaska and proceeds from prehistoric times to the present. Jonaitis incorporates into the region's social history the observations of anthropologists, art historians and Native peoples to reveal how a complex web of factors informed varied responses to the changes and challenges brought about by contact with Europeans. Jonaitis is director of the University of Alaska Museum of the North and professor of anthropology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
