Three Centuries of Woodlands Indian Art: A Collection of Essays contains 18 papers edited by J. C. H. King and Christian F. Feest that presents the writings of leading North American and European scholars and curators about the art traditions of the First Nations of the Woodland cultural region. Several papers have their beginning at a 1999 conference held at the Museum of Mankind. This volume was published in 2007 by the European Review of Native American Studies. The papers cover the early collecting of North American Indian objects and artifacts by military collectors, the museums that collect objects and how they display the pieces, as well as contemporary Haudenosaunee art politics and representation in galleries and museums. The early collecting by military personnel in North America returned to Europe and can be found today in Scotland, Switzerland, Germany, and Britain. The papers discuss the clothing, war implements, basketry, weaving, and decorative arts of the Menominee, Ojibwe, James Bay Cree, Pequot, Haudenosaunee (Iroquois), Saulteaux, Tuscarora, Seneca, and Mohawk. Of particular interest is the paper by Trudy Nicks and Ruth B. Phillips about the performing career of Mohawk entertainer Esther Deer, also known by her stage name, Princess White Deer. Her career spanned the years 1890 to the 1930s and the article reproduces colour and archival images of her posters, clothing, props, and portraits. The final two papers discuss contemporary Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) art and artists. Doris Stambrau's paper is "The Art Reflects the People" Perspectives on Works by Contemporary Iroquois Artists. The final paper is written by Tuscarora artist and curator Jolene Rickard and examines the exhibition she curated, In the Shadow of the Eagle. The book contains stunning images of objects from the European museums and reaffirms the idea that Europe is still fascinated by the art and fine craft of Woodland Indians from the past and present. The authors also comment on the changing approach to the display and interpretation of First Nations art. The contributors include: George Bankes, Jack Campisi, Christian F.
