Sample Text
A true understanding of much Native American art is not possible unless accompanied by a familiarity with the culture or group from which the art came. The artworks inevitably relate to the people who created or owned them. They may refer to a person’s status within the community; record a historical event; mark an individual whose powers of wisdom, vision, or healing are held in high regard; or serve as a reminder of an agreement.
