Published by Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.
Essays by Truman T. Lowe, Paul Chaat Smith and Lisbeth Haas. Foreword by W. Richard West Jr.
Of the three works covered here, which the National Museum of the American Indian brought to the Venice Biennale, one offers a tribute to a Luiseno Indian who traveled from Luna's tribal home in California to Rome to study for the priesthood in 1834. Luna oscillates between shaman and showman, a duality highlighted by this book's lenticular cover.
