Across Borders | Beadwork in Iroquois Life

Across Borders: Beadwork in Iroquois Life

"The story of the Iroquois beadwork takes us across many borders, both real and conceptual. We will travel from European glass factories to the Iroquois territories of North America. We will see how beadwork, though always a feature of everyday life, is also linked to the spiritual, economic and political worlds of the Iroquois. The story of beadwork moves smoothly between past and present. It is a story marked by continuity, innovation, determination, humor and, ultimately, survival."
