The contemporary Native American Indians of the Great Basin region include highly respected artists. Some of them use strictly traditional imagery and craftsmanship in their work, others combine these aspects with contemporary materials and concepts. No matter the approach taken, their artistry carries astute cultural and natural understanding of the landscapes of Nevada, California, and Oregon.
