In this extensive collection of essays by twelve Native American artists and authors, the contexts of Native Americans in historical and contemporary photography is explored. "For this volume, edited and introduced by Lucy R. Lippard, each contributor has chosen one or two photographs as the point of departure for there original poetic, historical, political or autobiographical essays." "This book," Lippard writes, "is an attempt to peel away from these pictures the myths of various discoveries, conquests, and frontiers that have constructed our tragic mutual history, and to put the photos back in the hands of their subjects."
