Description

Gifts of Pride and Love: Kiowa and Comanche Cradles is an exhibition catalogue that accompanied the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology's collaborative efforts of museum staff and community members to celebrate the work of Kiowa and Comanche mothers and grandmothers who created amazing cradles for their beloved children in years past. Now these skillfully designed works of art are housed in museum collections and separated from their cultural context. The book seeks to reconnect the families with their treasures made with love and pride. The book contains forty colour photographs and more than 80 archival images that show the detail and craftsmanship of the cradles.
