From the Publisher:

Native quilters in the Hawaiian Islands and North America have long used color and design to create spectacular and innovative quilts. Supported by traditional motifs and community interactions for more than 150 years, this craft has provided native peoples a continuing medium to pass on their artistic and cultural legacies. To Honor and Comfort examines the different ways in which these peoples have incorporated this popular craft into their lives and the unique meanings these quilts hold for their communities. To Honor and Comfort explores the images and meanings of Winnebago ribbon quilts, Plains Indian star motifs, Yuwipi giveaway quilts, Hopi baby naming quilts, Hawaiian appliqud quilts, seal party quilts of the Nelson Island Eskimos, and many more. We come to understand that what distinguishes these spectacular textiles are not only the "Indian" icons and designs but the role their creation and gifting play in community relationships and tribal traditions. Essays on contemporary and historical quilting traditions as well as profiles of quilters from around the country and rare historical photographs highlight this lavishly illustrated new book. Featuring more than eighty quilts from the exhibit To Honor and Comfort: Native Quilting Traditions, organized by the National Museum of the American Indian, and scheduled to tour nationally. Published in association with Michigan State University Museum.
