“Unpacking meaning in America’s material culture over discrete historical periods can, in the aggregate, show us who we really are. Such investigation brings into high relief the narratives we make with words and the narratives we make with art and artifacts. For America that investigation involves three major streams; the Euro-American; the African American; and First Peoples. This discussion shows how these streams, in parallel and divergent expression, create the turbulent seas of American identity and ethos discovered in its material culture.” —Ramona Austin
