BLACKFOOT CRAFTWORKER’S BOOK
The main purpose of this book is to encourage craftworkers among the four divisions of the Blackfoot Nation to learn the traditional styles of their own People’s culture. The articles illustrated in here are in the collections of various museums throughout North America. Most of them are not readily accessible to Blackfoot craftworkers. Many of them are stored in dark rooms, surrounded by the smell of mothballs. Museums have only limited display space, and generally select only the finest articles to keep out. This book, then, is your own personal version of a museum display on the Blackfoot material culture.
