Photo by Bob Johnston On exhibition in an Oregon National Park. Quite a challange to Photograph, behind glass in a dimly lit room, no daylight to protect artefacts from fading, etc. The lights were positioned not for viewing, but for visitors to make their way through the Museum. No Tripods were allowed, so had to handhold my Nikon for about a 1/5th of a second exposure.
Beadwork is a quintessentially Native American art form, but ironically uses beads imported from Europe and Asia. Glass beads have been in use for almost five centuries in the Americas. Today a wide range of beading styles flourish.
In the Great Lakes, Ursuline nuns introduced floral patterns to tribes, who quickly applied them to beadwork. Great Lakes tribes are known for their bandolier bags, that take an entire year to complete. During the 20th century the tribes, such as the Lakota perfected contour-style beadwork, in which the lines of beads are stitch to emphasize the pictorial imagery. Plains tribes are master beaders, and today dance regalia for man and women feature a variety of beadwork styles. While Plains and Plateau tribes are renowned for their beaded horse trappings, Subarctic tribes such as the Dene bead lavish floral dog blankets. Eastern tribes have a completely different beadwork aesthetic, and Innu, Mi'kmaq, Penobscot, and Haudenosaunee tribes are known for symmetrical scroll motifs in white beads, called the "double curve." Iroquois are also known for "embossed" beading in which strings pulled taut force beads to pop up from the surface, creating a bas-relief. Zuni artists have developed a tradition of three-dimensional beaded sculptures.
