Faces of Identity, Hands of Skill: Folk Arts in North Dakota
By Troyd A. Geist

  • This 40-page, full-color, book focuses on the traditions embodied in the lives of North Dakota folk artists representing twelve cultural groups: Mandan, Dakota Sioux, Sisseton Sioux, Lakota/Hidatsa, Metis, Banat German, Ukrainian, German-Russian, Armenian, Khmer, Kurdish, and Vietnamese. It attempts to illustrate the integrated nature of culture and to show how folk art brings a face to familial, religious, and cultural identity. The traditions of these folk artists have passed the test of time, surviving and reflecting immigration, "hard years," political and religious persecution, and wars.
