This publication details the generous donation by Carolyn Danforth of 251 works of Plains Indian art and celebrates the collection of her late husband, Donald Danforth Jr. This book examines not only Donald Danforth Jr. (1932-2001) and his sensibilities as a collector of Native American art, but also situates the artworks as evidence of remarkable creativity in the context of tumultuous historical change. Contributing authors include scholars, artists, and practitioners, many of whom are Native American members of the communities from which the artworks originated. Their insights illuminate the historical and indigenous significance of specific artworks and genres and present multiple perspectives that are as richly varied as the works themselves.
