Each profile identifies the artist by tribe, clan, active years, styles, lifespan, residences, education, teachers, students, awards, exhibitions, demonstrations, collections, photographs, and publications.

Personal portrait pictures and close-ups of their jewelry help to bring their biographies to life.

This volume also provides two new features:

1. The Hallmark Directory - offers high resolution, digital close-ups. Many Native American jewelers stamp their work with personal, pictographic symbols or initials. This feature helps identify jewelers.
