It focuses on the techniques of the western Sioux, showing how to re-create their decorative use of quills and beads, with explanations of techniques involved in quillwork, including dyeing and sewing; beadwork methods; and the development of Sioux designs. Amply illustrated with over 80 photographs and drawings, this concise study offers a valuable resource of authentic designs for readers interested in crafts and in Native American culture."
