Abstract (English)

Essays consider "cultural persistence" in relation to physical, cultural and environmental survival. The history of Inuit art and its reception in southern Canada is outlined. Considering the relation of cultural identity and the reading of art, the effect of the internment of Japanese-Canadians on the community and on individual identity is analyzed. The categories of Native art and artist, as well as the history of the critical reception of this work are examined. Biographical notes. Circa 90 bibl. ref.
