Product description

Review

Kathleen Mundell writes 'North by Northeast: Wabanaki, Akwesasne Mohawk, and Tuscarora Traditional Arts' in a collaborative spirit, letting the artists speak directly about their art and culture. Although the book focuses largely on baskets, it also covers beadwork, canoe making, wood carving and quilting. What's difficult to escape is the sense of longstanding tradition that binds the artists and their communities, giving the book a compelling cultural text.

An in-depth view of how contemporary artists continue to practice the traditional arts of basketmaking, beadwork, birchbark canoe making, and woodcarving.

Mundell has been gathering material for this book for 15 years. Native American traditional artists-over 35 of them living primarily in Maine and New York-explore here the connection to place, tradition, cultural identity. Mundell features profiles of the artists themselves with their own words and illustrations of their individual work....the artwork-exquisitely photographed here-especially the basketmaking-is breathtaking in its intricacy of design and utility, particular shapes and artistic renderings often handed down through generations in families....Mundell's collaboration with the basketmakers has resulted in a multi-tribal effort to preserve the ash-basketry tradition and the creation of the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance. This book is part of a traveling exhibition of the basketmaking and beadmaking arts touring the northeast beginning in earlier 2008.
