Summary "Native Peoples: Arts and Lifeways", Vol. 20 No. 3; May/June 2007

On the Cover:

A Pueblo Indian of New Mexico, simply identified as Wyemah,

photographed by Edward S. Curtis circa 1905 (published in Indians of

North America,1900–1910, courtesy Library of Congress), looks across

the ages and the superimposed image by Kyle Gerstner of a great blue

heron hunting its next meal in the Wakarusa Wetlands of Kansas. Sacred

places like these wetlands are continually being threatened by

inappropriate development and misuse.





FEATURES





Sacred Ground: Landscapes as Living Spirit


American Indians consider the land a living entity and believe certain

places have powerful spiritual forces associated with them. Many sacred

places are threatened by inappropriate development today, while some

have been permanently protected. Read about the significance of holy

places such as the San Francisco Peaks in northern Arizona, Devil’s

Tower in northeastern Wyoming, Bear Butte in South Dakota and the Zuni

Salt Lake in western New Mexico—and the battles to save them from

housing tracts, strip mining, chemical plants and other assaults. By

Jake Page.





Pointing Toward Perfection


Many of the finest Native artists in America will gather again for the

2007 Eiteljorg Museum Indian Market in Indianapolis on June 23,

including some of last year’s prize winners: potters Judy Tafoya (Santa

Clara Pueblo) and Lincoln Tafoya (Comanche/Santa Clara Pueblo),

sculptor Adrian Wall (Jemez Pueblo/Chippewa) and jeweler Allison Lee

(Diné). Plus details on the 2007 event. By RoseMary Diaz (Santa Clara

Pueblo).








Full Steam Ahead at the Eiteljorg Museum


The Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis forges on with an ambitious

schedule for 2007, including Totems to Turquoise: Native North American

Jewelry Arts of the Northwest and Southwest, the Quest for the West

Show and Sale, and the interactive exhibit Stagecoach, plus the fifth

round of its acclaimed fellowship program and many exciting special

events. By Jennifer Complo McNutt.
