Art of the American Indian Frontier

A Portfolio

The art contained in this portfolio—all from the renowned Chandler-Pohrt Collection—includes colorful men’s and women’s clothing, buckskin and porcupine quill bags, woven sashes, jewelry, smoking pipes, and other decorative and ceremonial objects, all made between 1800 and 1920. The design and craftsmanship are witness to the creative spirit that endured even in the face of continual governmental attempts at forced assimilation. Replete with twenty-four beautifully printed, unbound, full-color plates, Art of the American Indian Frontier opens the door to the rich world of North American Woodlands and Plains Indian art.
