Owning Her – Body, Mind And Soul

In 1859, James Carnegie, a Scots noble, while travelling in North America, acquired a magnificent Blood Indian woman’s dress.

She had made it from the finest prepared skins of mountain-sheep.

She had lovingly embroidered it with blue and white beads.

Carnegie notes: Her husband stripped her naked of her prized garment and sold it to him for rum.

Woman’s work.
Woman’s art.
Woman’s heart.
Woman’s soul.

Man’s property.
