Main Description
During the late nineteenth century and most of the twentieth century, Aboriginal art received short shrift in Canadian historical literature, but today Aboriginal art is finally being regarded as art in its own right in the best sense of the word. This book presents a literary and visual journey, reflecting on Aboriginal lifestyles and artwork of the seven major culture areas of Canada: Maritime, Eastern Woodland, Plains, Plateau, Northwest Coast, Northern, and Metis. Most of the cited Aboriginal artists are internationally known, and their careers represent a wide variety of artistic undertakings including architecture, carving, ceramics, drama, mask-making, painting, photography, and sculpture.
