First member: the Anonymous Plains Beadwork Artists

This remarkable beaded map of North America was done by a Plains "Indian." As with much such art, the name of the person who created it was lost by the collectors who owned it.

This beaded map is in the Texas Memorial Museum in Austin. Interestingly, Mexican states are colored, but not Canadian provinces. Note that Oklahoma is divided into the Oklahoma Territory on the west and the Indian Territory on the east. This dates the work between 1890, when the Oklahoma territory, including the "panhandle" was organized and 1907, when the territories were united into the State of Oklahoma.
