Artists affiliated with southern tribes of the Northwest Coast of America are pushing the boundaries of previously accepted concepts of native art. The work of contemporary Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth, and Makah artists are created in huge public installations of wood, cement, and metal.  Over 50 contemporary artists and 400 spectacular, color photographs showcase works in this new and beautiful reference. The chapters highlight new designs in canoes, paddles, weaving, baskets, and woven hats; and inspirations from the sky (birds, sun), earth (animals), and water (fish), as well as in jewelry and glass items of exquisite detail. Art lovers will enjoy these inspiring stories of success.
