About this title


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.

About the Author:

Bob Scriver was a man of great and varied accomplishments: an internationally recognized Western sculptor, an accomplished trumpet player with a master's degree in music, a well-known taxidermist, and with his father, Thaddeus Emery Scriver, a collector and preserver of a large segment of Blackfeet Indian material and culture.

Scriver expressed his "deepest respect and appreciation to the countless Blackfeet and other native craftspeople who, though unknown, created the beautiful object pictured on these pages. I also wish to thank the people who recognized the need to preserve these items so that future generations of Blackfeet could marvel at, study and be inspired by the works of their forefathers."
