A look at the indigenous art in Alaska

Southeast Alaska

Hello everyone,

This week we will start looking at the artwork of Southeast Alaska, or of the Northwest Coast depending on your perspective. Please  read   Crossroads of Continents pp 58-63, and From the Land of Totem Poles pp 17-26 that you can find in in Blackboard  under  Module 3   and pp 107-125 in our Native Art of Alaska book.
Please watch the video lectures on Blackboard, and take the short quiz.

Sealaska Heritage  Institute has been publishing some great videos on Formline design that I have included. These are about an hour each and are not required, but are provided if you are interested  in learning more about  the design  structure of Southeast Alaska.
