 Spirit of Native America:
 Beauty and Mysticism in American Indian Art

By: Anna Lee Walters

Art and religion are two words that have no equivalents in languages spoken by Native Americans. Yet these intensely spiritual people created objects for everyday use that are unsurpassed for sheer beauty, originality, and craftsmanship. The Spirit of Native America explains this apparent contradiction in language as rich in symbolism as the art itself. Stunning full-color photography augments the text, yielding a new perspective on this often misunderstood facet of Native American culture. 

Nearly 250 pieces from this magnificent collection are exquisitely reproduced in The Spirit of Native America.  Anna Walter's authoritative text removes these beautiful and mysterious objects from the usual category of museum relics and places them in their proper tribal perspective.  She helps us understand that, to the Indian, art and beauty are integral to life, not separate from it.  This beautiful and intriguing book takes us to a new level of awareness about the inherent spirituality of Native American art and provides new insights into the people who created it.
