Native Universe: Voices of Indian America by Gerald McMaster 2008
Native Universe: Voices of Indian America (Native American Tribal Leaders, Writers, Scholars, and Story Tellers). Gerald McMaster; Clifford E. Trafzer, National Geographic Society, 2008.
The Smithsonian's new National Museum of the American Indian will be the last museum to be built on the National Mall and its opening will be a major, national media event. To commemorate the opening, the National Geographic Society has collaborated with the museum's curators and advisers to produce a lavishly illustrated, comprehensive volume based on major themes relevant to American Indian peoples.
Written by a distinguished group of Native American scholars, poets, activists, and tribal leaders, the book will offer its non-Indian readers a closer understanding of Native perspectives, beliefs, and histories.
There are more than 300 illustrations (250 in color), some of them archival, but most show rare and beautiful Indian artifacts seldom seen.
Paperback. Nice condition with very light wear. 9" x 11.9"; 320 pages.
