9780806122151: The Navajo and Pueblo Silversmiths (The Civilization of the American Indian Series)

Probably no Native American handicrafts are more widely admired than Navajo weaving and Navajo and Pueblo silver work. This book, which is now in its third large printing, contains the most important and complete account of Indian jewelry fashioned by the Navajo, the Zuni, the Hopi, and other Pueblo peoples. "With the care of a meticulous and thorough scholar, the author has told the story of his several years' investigation of jewelry making among the Southwestern Indians," says The Dallas Times Herald. "So richly decorative are the plates he uses ... that the conscientious narrative is surrounded by an atmosphere of genuinely exciting visual experience." John Adair is a trained ethnologist who has lived and worked among these Indians.

To prepare his book, Mr. Adair made an exhaustive examination of the principal museum collections of Navajo and Pueblo silver work, both early and modem, in Santa Fe, Colorado Springs, Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia. He visited trading posts in the Indian country and examined and photographed silver on the pawn racks and in important private collections. He lived for a time among the Navajo, watched them make their jewelry, and actually learned to work silver himself in the hogan of one of the leading artisans, Tom Burnsides. Many of the photographs he made at the time are used as illustrations in this book. He spent months among the Indians in New Mexico and Arizona and became personally acquainted with many of their silversmiths. Later, as field worker for the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, he studied the economics of Navajo and Pueblo silversmithing; and still later he became manager of the Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild, a tribal enterprise.

The Navajo and Pueblo Silversmiths provides a full history of the craft and the actual names and localities of the pioneer craftsmen who introduced the art of the silversmith to their people. Despite its present high stage of development, with its many subtle and often exquisite designs, the art of working silver is not an ancient one among the Navajo and Pueblo Indians. There are men still living today who remember the very first silversmiths.

Mr. Adair gives full details, as he observed them, of the methods and techniques of manufacture over a primitive forge with homemade tools. He tells both of the fine pieces made for trade among the Indians themselves and of the newer, cheaper types of jewelry produced for sale to tourists. He discusses standards and qualities of Indian silver and describes the work of the Indian schools in helping preserve traditional design in the fine silver of today. His excellent photographs of some of the most notable pieces, old and new, provide examples for evaluation. This volume, therefore, will serve the layman, the ethnologist, and the dealer alike as a guide to proper values in Indian silver jewelry, and will provide the basis for authoritative knowledge and appreciation of a highly skilled creative art.

About the Author:

John Adair, (1913-1997) was a founder of the Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild and the chief anthropologist on the staff of the Cornell Navajo Field Health Project.

Adair received a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin in 1937 and a doctorate from the University of New Mexico, where he studied from 1946 to 1948. He taught anthropology at Cornell early in his career and at San Francisco State University from 1964 to 1978.

Review:

"With the care of a meticulous and thorough scholar, the author has told the story of his several years’ investigation of jewelry making among the Southwestern Indians. So richly decorative are the plates he uses for his numerous illustrations showing the jewelry itself, that the conscientious narrative is surrounded by an atmosphere of genuinely exciting visual experience."–Dallas Morning News.

"The wealth of detail, the exact documentation, and the excellent tables, charts and plates make The Navajo and Pueblo Silversmiths a book of exceptional worth."–American Sociological Review.

"The analysis of the economic aspects of the craft is painstaking and well carried out. Reading between the lines one must inevitable envisage the long weary hours spent in traveling to the isolated hogans and trading posts in quest of these data. This is no armchair compilation, but one that carries with it the tang of juniper wood burning in winter hogans, of the wet earth after a sturdy ’he’ rain and the odor of coffee and mutton cooking over open fires. It is a labor of love plus a lot of sweat."–New York Herald Tribune.

For the first time in anthropological history, Mr. Adair presents the development of the Pueblo silversmiths and includes a roster of native Indian smiths which will delight the hearts of all collectors of silver. –New York Herald Tribune.
