The Apsáalooke people, often referred to as the Crow, are known for their bravery and artistry, and their rich culture has developed over centuries in the Northern Plains. The Apsáalooke Women and Warriors project is a multi-format undertaking that presents a rich narrative of the Apsáalooke cultural past, figures the present-day Apsáalooke identity, and presents a vision for the future. This book, published by the Neubauer Collegium and distributed by the University of Chicago Press, combines images of contemporary and historic Apsáalooke cultural items and includes essays by Apsáalooke writers. While it works in concert with the Apsáalooke Women and Warriors exhibition at the Field Museum and the Neubauer Collegium, it also stands alone as a significant exploration of the iconography, lifeways, and cosmologies of the Apsáalooke people. Through writing, images, and sound, contemporary Apsáalooke artists and intellectuals convey the worldview of the Apsáalooke people, with each contributor offering a unique perspective.
All proceeds from this book will benefit Little Big Horn College in Crow Agency, Montana.
