Description

Warriors of the Plains: The Arts of Plains Indian Warfare by Max Carocci complements the British Museum exhibition on Plains art focusing on war regalia. This richly illustrated study featuring 150 colour photographs interweaves a survey of North American Plains history with a generously detailed examination of Plains warrior art - weapons, amulets, clothing, and ceremonial objects - with particular emphasis on their spiritual use and symbolic meanings. Featuring modern and archival photographs from the British Museum, this book offers a novel approach to a fascinating subject, while integrating history, anthropology, and personal narratives. Max Carocci is a project curator at the British Museum. Chapters include Historic Plains cultures before the twentieth century; Societies and warrior regalia; Warriors and the technologies of warfare; Diplomacy and war; Plains Indians and modern conflicts; and Cultural revitalization. Includes a section on contemporary powwow regalia.
