The Native nations of the Pacific Northwest are renowned for the beauty and complexity of their artistic traditions. In this lavishly illustrated book, writers from eleven Northwest Coast communities describe the importance of carvings, weavings, and other treasures from the collections of the National Museum of the American Indian to their cultures. In words and images, these writers offer a series of unique perspectives on the art of Native life, and on the living meaning of their cultural inheritance.
