About the Author

Henrietta Lidchi, an anthropologist and curator, is currently Keeper of the Department of World Cultures at National Museums Scotland. She is coeditor of Imaging the Arctic (1998) and Visual Currencies (2009).


"This is a highly significant contribution to the field, understanding that the field is far broader than those interested solely in jewellery. This is a model study of an art form with few precedents, at least in the field of Native American arts."--Jonathan Batkin, Director, Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian
"Henrietta Lidchi is one of those rare scholars who can see a subject from every angle. Surviving Desires pushes past narrow histories of its subject, showing how questions of style and authenticity connect to broader dynamics of culture and economy. This book is a tremendous contribution to Native American studies, and also serves as a model for those studying the history of craft and design in other contexts." --Glenn Adamson, Director of the Museum of Arts and Design
