Drawing on the vast collections of the National Museum of the American Indian, Creation's Journey retells the story of native life from the Arctic to the Tierra del Fuego, and from childhood to old age. Using objects, historical photographs, and the voices of Native Americans past and present, the book reawakens our senses to values and traditions that once prevailed. 220 color and 120 duotone photos." ; Contents: Introduction: a backward glimpse through the museum door -- Growing up Indian: Osage childhood, Giving thanks for what we have as Indians -- Visual prayers: The symbolism of feathers -- Vision and virtuosity: The legacy of baskets, Reading ledger art -- Across the generations: Native gold, Spanish gold -- Epilogue: Art through Indian eyes. ; Published in conjunction with an exhibition held at the National Museum of the American Indian, New York City, Oct. 1994-Feb. 1997 ; "Tom Hill, a native of Upper Sandusky, is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and a former board member of the Wyandot County Historical Society. He and his wife, Marnie, maintain a private collection of historical memorabilia and artifacts. Ashlie Payton, also a native of Upper Sandusky, is the curator of the Wyandot County Museum and a member of the 14th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, a Civil War reenactment group." ; "This inaugural exhibition features 165 major objects from the museum's permanent collection. The objects come from 200 different tribal groups from North, Central, and South America, dating from 3200 B.C. to the 20th century. Among the objects on view are Kiowa, Osage, and Yuma cradleboards; Sioux and Comanche dresses; and Potawatomi, Seminole, and Huichol dolls." ; "In [this] memorable book, Indian people use words, actions, and artifacts to represent themselves as fully human, free at last from the soul-cramping and spirit-reducing tests of authenticity and purity."-The New York Times Book Review; For the first Americans, a record of the past is written in the objects that were a part of daily life. Values, traditions, and beliefs are embodied in works of Native creativity, from children's toys to leaders' war shirts, and from Arctic kayaks to masks made by the people of Tierra del Fuego. Using objects from the museum's collection, historical photographs, and the voices of Native Americans past and present, Creation's Journey reawakens us to ways of life and thought that once prevailed in the Americas, and that are still observed in many Native homes and communities." ; FINE/FINE.
