Contemporary First Nations artists of the Northwest Coast have long been among the most dynamic, important artists working in North America. Their art is a visible manifestation of the extraordinary cultural explosion that has transformed First Nations life up and down the BC coast. Through their own words and artwork, Ian M. Thom examines the career, working methods and philosophy of forty active artists, all of whom he has interviewed. Featured here are their works, often combining new materials and old traditions, as well as extensive passages from conversations with these established and up-and-coming artists from the Pacific Northwest Coast.
