Celebrating the vitality of comtemporary Native art, this text traces the political context of Native art production from the 1890s to the present, and engages with a range of concepts and issues such as the influence of spirituality in Native art, and the struggle for artistic self-determination.

With contributions from anthropologists, art historians, curators and practising artists, this collection examines pottery, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography and performance art by some of the celebrated Native American and Canadian artists of the 20th century. From the Pueblo pottery revival to the invention and marketing of modern Inuit art, contributors offer new interpretative stategies based on Native culture and knowledge, stressing the significance of tradition, mythology and ceremony in the production of Native art, and conceptualizing recent art in terms of home, homeland and aboriginal sovereignty.
