In the winter of 2012/2013, De Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam will present an exhibition about the artistic traditions of American Indians, the indigenous peoples of the North American continent. Exploring seven different regions, the exhibition will paint a picture of the rich and diverse arts and cultures of these Native American peoples. More than two hundred works of art and artefacts will transport visitors to the prairies of the Midwest, the plains around the Great Lakes, the shores of California, Canada’s west coast, and the homes of the Navajo and the Inuit. LINK Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam
