Beyond the Frame: Pacific Northwest Coast Native Art

 

Learn about the distinctive artistic traditions of Pacific Northwest Native Americans with these resources, compiled by a librarian at The Seattle Public Library for Beyond the Frame. Beyond the Frame is a community-wide initiative revisiting the photographs of Edward S. Curtis and sparking conversations on Native identity, race and resilience, art and culture. We are one of more than twenty organizations participating in the Pacific Northwest. We will be presenting exhibits and programming throughout the year, beginning with Living Cultures.

A Totem Pole History: The Work of Lummi Carver Joe Hillaire

A Totem Pole History: The Work of Lummi Carver Joe Hillaire
Hillaire, Pauline

"Joseph Hillaire (Lummi, 1894-1967) is recognized as one of the great Coast Salish artists, carvers, and tradition-bearers of the twentieth century. In A Totem Pole History, his daughter Pauline Hillaire, Scu00e4lla-Of the Killer Whale (b. 1929), who is herself a well-known cultural historian and conservator, tells the story of her father's life and the traditional and contemporary Lummi narratives that influenced his work. A Totem Pole History contains seventy-six photographs, including Joe's most significant totem poles, many of which Pauline watched him carve. She conveys with great insight the stories, teachings, and history expressed by her father's totem poles. Eight contributors provide essays on Coast Salish art and carving, adding to the author's portrayal of Joe's philosophy of art in Salish life, particularly in the context of twentieth century intercultural relations. This engaging volume provides an historical record to encourage Native artists and brings the work of a respected Salish carver to the attention of a broader audience. "--
