Quill And Beadwork Of The Western Sioux book

From the Introduction: Seventy five, one hundred and two hundred years ago, when visitors from the Old World prepared their baggage for dangerous America, one of its most important items was bright colored beads for the Indians. We have drawn freely upon authorities and their writings in preparing this material.

After a long period of neglect, accompanied in many instances by deliberate attempts to destroy the native art expressions because of their pagan origin, the revival of interest finds both Indians and Whites in ignorance or uncertainty with regard to both origins and techniques.

To assist Indian schools to teach the oncoming generation of young Indians to appreciate and practice the arts of their people, and to assist the older Indians in the revival and perfecting of native crafts both as an artistic and economic asset, the Education Division of the Office of Indian Affairs is undertaking the publication of a series of pamphlets, setting forth in popular language what is known about the arts or crafts of specific areas.

Such decoration was not a new art. While prepared and published primarily for use by schools and adult classes of the Indian Service, these pamphlets are available for purchase by others. Traders, explorers, and even officials carried these beads, for they had found that Indian women urged their men to trade for them so that the women might decorate with brilliant patterns the clothing and bags which they made.

Seneca Basketry, by Marjorie Lismer. This art of quillwork was an American Indian art, practice nowhere else in the world, and the women gave it up gradually only because beads were so much easier to use. Quill and Beadwork of the Western Sioux is the classic work on these important Plains Indian arts, applying to the Cheyennes and Arapahoes as well as to the Sioux.

Much that will be found in these pamphlets has been previously published elsewhere. Robe with realistic figures painted by man. Pueblo Embroidery, by Ellen Lawrence.

Sioux man in costume. Each woman used personal and original designs which she received through her own dreams. What is indigenously Indian, and what is the result of the adaptation by Indian creative genius of White materials or designs is often a matter of dispute, with the evidence far from conclusive.

However in drawing together this material and presenting it in a form which will enable teachers and pupils to visualize clearly the various steps in the practical carrying out of these ancient crafts, it is hoped to further stimulate interest in Indian arts; and where practical a revival of them among the people to whom they historically belong.

When European beads became available the traditional designs were carried over into beadwork. The following titles are now in preparation, or nearing publication: 1.
