Summary "Art historian Zena Pearlstone explores the ideas Honyouti sought to communicate through his work. She examines as well how he transmitted them by turning a traditional art form, the carved representations of katsinas, into a modernistic critique of local Native American and global concerns. It is as a result of these universal implications that Honyouti's art will endure"--Back cover.
