In contrast to the typical treatment of tribal arts in her day, which saw them as homogeneous, anonymous, and conservative, ONeale regarded the weavers as individuals, with personal styles and outlooks and a capacity for innovation. A pioneer in the study of Native American art, she presented the art from the weavers point of view. In addition to an introduction by ONeale scholar Margot Schevill, this edition includes an appendix listing the identities and tribal affiliations of ONeales 43 consultants.
