The Center for Indigenous Arts & Cultures is proud to present the third volume in our ''American Indian Art Series.'' This third volume presents brief biographical profiles of American Indian textile artists. They are organized into three groups: ''Navajo Weavers,'' ''Pueblo Textile Artists,'' and ''Other Native American Textile Artists.''


This book was created with the cooperation of American Indian artists and their friends. Through artist surveys, archival research and personal interviews, information was collected in 25 categories: including the artist's pueblo, moiety (social group), clan (group of extended families), active years, lifespan, family relationships, education, teachers, students, awards, demonstrations, exhibitions, collections, favorite designs, publications, and twenty years of auction records. Many artists completed a personal statement, ''I enjoy creating artwork, because. . .'' Some wrote or narrated autobiographical statements.
