Abstract (English)

"Haida Art has long been recognized as one of the shining achievements of North America's First Nations, on display in art galleries and museums around the world. But for too long this extraordinary art has been discussed with little reference to its creators or their homeland. With its dramatic land and sea forms, Haida Gwaii- the Queen Charlotte Islands, to some- has influenced the Haida's world view and artistic expression since time immemorial. The Haida developed their unique formline art there five centuries ago, and despite the ravages of colonial rule, it has seen an extraordinary renaissance in the las half century." -- dust jacket.
