The intent of this course is to explore the artistic production of the First Nations people whose traditional territories are located in the southern region of the Northwest coast. These include the Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwakawakw cultural groups. We will approach this inquiry in several ways, employing chronological and thematic methodologies as well as oral traditions. We will examine the cultural production of the Northwest coast from prehistory to contemporary times, with an emphasis on how connection to place and community are expressed through the visual arts.
