    Warriors of the Plains is a survey of the history of North American Plains Indian warrior societies and their ongoing legacy, examining continuity and change between historic societies and contemporary military associations. It explores the art of North American Plains Indian warriors – weapons, amulets, clothing and ceremonial objects – with particular emphasis on their ritual use and symbolic meanings.

    A fresh approach to the subject, integrating history, anthropology and personal narratives, this volume is generously illustrated with objects from the British Museum's collection, as well as archival and modern photographs and much previously unpublished material.

    The author: Max Carocci is a project curator at the British Museum and has been conducting research with Plains Indians since 1989.
