Description

“Language of the Robe: American Indian Trade Blankets” by Robert W. Karoun

For all Native American cultures, from the Plains and Southwest people to the tribes of the Northwest Coast, the blanket makes a visual statement of “Indianness.” The Language of the Robe explains a living tradition among the Native American people. Today, trade blankets are collectibles, especially those that were made prior to World War II. Language of the Robe is the first book to identify, classify, and present the history of the trade blanket
