Book Description
From 1831 to 1837, George Catlin traveled extensively among the native peoples of North America—from the Muskogee and Miccosukee Creeks of the Southeast to the Lakota, Mandan, and Pawnee of the West, and from the Winnebagos and Menominees of the North to the Comanches of eastern Texas. Studying their habits, customs, and modes of life, he made copious notes and numerous sketches of ceremonies, buffalo hunts, symbols, and totems. Catlin’s unprecedented fieldwork culminated in more than five hundred oil paintings and his now-legendary journals, which, as Peter Matthiessen writes in his introduction, "taken together... constitute the first, last, and only ‘complete’ record of the Plains Indians ever made at the height of their splendid culture, so soon destroyed by traders’ liquor and disease,...

Book Description
From the foremost collection of the artist's work, a remarkable portrait of Native American life. In 1832, George Catlin—showman, entrepreneur, and artist—made the first of four trips into Indian country, painting as he went, in a wonderfully spontaneous, if somewhat naive style. His ambition was to paint every tribe. He fell short. But what he did achieve, and the subject of this splendid volume, is a remarkable look into the faces and daily activities of Native Americans before their lands and their numbers were so radically diminished. And while Catlin was clearly influenced by the idea that Indians were Noble Savages (rapidly acquiring the vices of the white man while losing their "savage" virtues), his passion for his work is evidence of a profound respect and affection for his subjects, clearly...


Writing Culture: The Poetics and Politics of Ethnography

April 1986
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Description
n these new essays, a group of experienced ethnographers, a literary critic, and a historian of anthropology, all known for advanced analytic work on ethnographic writing, place ethnography at the center of a new intersection of social history, interpretive anthropology, travel writing, discourse theory, and textual criticism.
The authors analyze classic examples of cultural description, from Goethe and Catlin to Malinowski, Evans-Pritchard, and Le Roy Ladurie, showing the persistence of allegorial patterns and rhetorical tropes. They assess recent experimental trends and explore the functions of orality, ethnicity, and power in ethnographic composition.
Writing Culture argues that ethnography is in the midst of a political and epistemological crisis: Western writers no longer portray non-Western peoples...

Portrait of Spotted Deer's Grandfather

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3?A journey made in 1836 by the American artist George Catlin provides the framework of this story. A Chippewa boy, Spotted Deer, urges his grandfather to let Catlin paint his portrait, but the old man is reluctant. It is not until Moose Horn observes in Catlin the same sadness for the loss of the Indians' culture that he himself feels, and is prompted by a spirit visitation of himself as a young warrior, that he allows the artist to paint him. The idea that being painted can confer a kind of immortality is a concept perhaps too advanced for the primary graders who are the likeliest audience for this story. The elegiac mood of the text is reinforced by deChristopher's oil paintings, reminiscent of Thomas Locker's work. While some of the scenes are sketchily drawn, the faces of Catlin and Moose Horn,...
