Dakota Culture at the Crossroads. Vojta Náprstek and His Dakota Collection from 1856

Vojta Náprstek made his journey to the Dakota people in 1856, precisely at the time when their culture stood at a crossroads under the weight of large economic and political changes. The subject of the book thus covers not only the objects from Vojta Náprstek’s collection, the circumstances of their acquisition and the collector’s personality but also the cultural context evidenced by these objects.
