The Ten Kate Collection 1882–1888

North American Indian Material Culture

 

 

 

In the course of two years of anthropological fieldwork in the American West in the 1880s, Hermann ten Kate (1858–1931) assembled a sizable collection of Indian artifacts. These pieces, ranging from utilitarian tools to genuine works of art, are especially important because of their early date of acquisition. This catalogue presents the complete collection and places the artifacts in their cultural and historical background.

With contributions by Duane Anderson, Ted Brasser, Laura van Broekhoven, Alan Ferg, Ruth B. Phillips, Marian E. Rodee, and David R. Wilcox.

 

Pieter Hovens is curator of the North American Department at the National Museum of Ethnology in Leiden, the Netherlands. His publications include studies on Ten Kate’s life and work, Native American material culture, Indian-White relations, and gypsy affairs.
