Exhibition: Warriors of the Plains, Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh, until February 19 2012
What with the ceremonial rattles, flamboyant 200-year-old Canadian dance gear, feathered headdresses, natty moccasins, ceremonial regalia and battlefield rituals, you could say the ancient tribes of North America lend themselves to a certain amount of visual enthrallment.
Run in partnership with the British Museum, this look at warrior societies includes pictures of war dances, weapons, costumes and drawings, shedding new light on the amazing natives lying in wait for the first wave of immigrants to the USA.
"This is both a special and unusual exhibition," explains the London institution's Max Carocci.
"Warrior ethic was at the heart of Native American society and integral in social and ceremonial traditions.
"It displays age-old practice and culture and places them in a modern context, looking at how the warrior legacy stills hold much relevance for 21st century Native Americans."
A colour portrait of contemporary Assiniboine dancer Kevin Haywahe by tribal photographer Jeff Thomas and three rare lithographs by early 19th century painter George Catlin, illustrating historical aspects of Plains warriors' life and their appearances, are among the highlights.
