As the first book on the subject, Tattoo Traditions of Native North America explores the astonishingly rich and diverse forms of tattooing that the Indigenous peoples of North America have produced for thousands of years.

Long neglected by anthropologists and art historians, tattooing was a time-honored practice that expressed the patterns of tribal social organization and religion, while also channeling worlds inhabited by deities, spirits, and the ancestors. This ground-breaking book gives us an unparalleled look into one of the least-known mediums of Native American expressive culture that nearly disappeared from view in the twentieth century, until it was reborn in recent decades.
