ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the increased understanding of the economic, civic and religious importance of ancient arts. It cites the expanded methodologies called "New Art History," which provides a broader definition of art by encompassing works from early societies and moving beyond stereotypical views of artworks as simple artifacts. It notes that the combination of archaeology, ethnography and art history provides a unique window for studying early arts and a synthesis of knowledge for art interpretation. It provides information on the textile art in the Native Southeast until 1800s when agencies such as the Smithsonian Institution began excavations of mounds throughout southeastern North America.
