This collection represents a segment of the lives of the Navajo and Pueblo people of the American Southwest-two diverse groups who are an important part of American culture today. Each year thousands of visitors from all over the world attend their various ceremonial dances and events and many arrive with a knowledge and understanding of these happenings. For others, these are totally new experiences and a door is opened to unfamiliar ways of life, customs, traditions, and beliefs that have existed for hundreds and sometimes thousands of years, long before this country was called America. The "American-Indian Quarterly" said that "this text promotes the same kind of browsing magazines invite. Come to these gatherings and stroll, it seems to imply on page after page; at your leisure learn to appreciate how feasting and singing merge with dancing and storytelling." * * * * Kris Hotvedt studied at the Layton School of Art in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, received a BFA degree from San Francisco Art Institute, and her MFA from the Instituto Allende in Mexico. An artist of strong professional commitment and identification with Native American and Hispanic culture, Hotvedt exhibited widely throughout the United States in both group and solo shows. Her work is represented in public and private collations. The woodblock print was her principal medium, a medium that seems to best capture her unique interpretation of the American Southwest scene.

In 1899 at the age of fifty-six, Josephine Jefferson Foard moved from the East Coast to Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico, where she built her own house and a kiln for firing pottery. Her intent was to show Pueblo potters how to strengthen their pottery by using better firing methods and by glazing it on the interior to make it waterproof. She also aimed to assist potters by marketing their products in the East, not just as decorative items but as functional additions to Anglo households. Through collecting and studying historic pueblo pottery and with access to Foard's correspondence with family and the Commissioners of Indian Affairs, the authors of this book provide a rare glimpse into the life of a remarkable woman who ventured to the Southwest as an artist, potter, and entrepreneur. Foard's letters, included in the appendices, describe at length her experience at Laguna Pueblo and offer insights into her life and work and also the lives of people of Laguna Pueblo and others in New Mexico.
