Reservation X showcases installations created by seven of North America's foremost Indigenous artists: Mary Longman, of Gordon Reserve, Saskatchewan; Nora Naranjo-Morse, of Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico; Marianne Nicolson, of Kingcome Inlet, British Columbia; Shelley Niro, of Six Nations of the Grand River, Ontario; Jolene Rickard, of the Tuscarora Nation, New York; Mateo Romero, of Cochitl Pueblo, New Mexico; and C. Maxx Stevens, of the Seminole Nations, Oklahoma. Essays and modern and archival photographs set the installations into a rich variety of personal and political contexts. Gerald McMaster, Nancy Marie Mithlo, Paul Chaat Smith, and Charlotte Townsend-Gault contribute essays on community and identity that range from art theory to pop culture, from historical analysis to anecdote; they also contribute profiles of the artists. Harry Foster provides photographs of the artists' installations, and the artists themselves comment on their lives, their art, and their communities. The book is the exhibition catalogue for the exhibition originally held in the First People's Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization in 1998.
