Totem Tale: A Tall Story from Alaska (PAWS IV)

Totem Tale: A Tall Story from Alaska (PAWS

On a full-moon night in Alaska, a traditional native totem pole magically comes to life. The Grizzly, Beaver, Frog, and Raven all stretch and scratch and voice their relief at being free at last. But then the first dawn light appears on the horizon, and the totems have to reassemble themselves in the proper order before morning. Who should be on top of whom? Can wise Raven reason with these contentious creatures? Deb Vanasse’s enchanting text and Erik Brooks’s lively illustrations make this a memorable modern folktale.

Tlingit Tales, Potlatch and Totem

Lorle K. Harris compiled these tales, told by Robert Zuboff, eighty-year-old chief of the Beaver Clan at Angoon, Admiralty Island, who spent hours sharing tribal lore with the children. These tales picture the atmosphere of the Tlingit culture far more vividly than a textbook can. They are meant to instruct, inform, and warn, and as such have been a valuable tool in the education of the Native American for eons of time.

Proud Raven, Panting Wolf: Carving Alaska's New Deal Totem Parks (Art History Publication Initiative Books)

Proud Raven, Panting Wolf: Carving Alaska's New Deal

Among Southeast Alaska's best-known tourist attractions are its totem parks, showcases for monumental wood sculptures by Tlingit and Haida artists. Although the art form is centuries old, the parks date back only to the waning years of the Great Depression, when the US government reversed its policy of suppressing Native practices and began to pay Tlingit and Haida communities to restore older totem poles and move them from ancestral villages into parks designed for tourists.Dramatically altering the patronage and display of historic Tlingit and Haida crests, this New Deal restoration project had two key aims: to provide economic aid to Native people during the Depression and to recast their traditional art as part of America's heritage. Less evident is why Haida and Tlingit people agreed to lend their crest monuments to tourist attractions at a time when they were battling the US Forest Service for control of their traditional lands and resources. Drawing on interviews and government records, as well as the totem poles themselves, Emily Moore shows how Tlingit and Haida leaders were able to channel the New Deal promotion of Native art as national art into an assertion of their cultural and political rights. Just as they had for centuries, the poles affirmed the ancestral ties of...

The spectacular totem poles of British Columbia and Alaska, on which appear birds, animals, and unrecognizable creatures, are found nowhere else in the world. To save specimens of this now-abandoned American Indian craft and make them accessible to Alaska visitors, the United States Forest Service in 1938 began placing Tlingit and Haida totem poles in natural settings near Ketchikan, Wrangel, and Sitka. The Wolf and the Raven describes the poles, their place int he Indian culture of their day, the myths and legends they recount, and the history of the restoration program.

Northwest Coast Indian Art: An Analysis of Form

Northwest Coast Indian Art: An Analysis of

It is apparent that there was, on the Northwest Coast, a highly developed system for the organization of form and space in two-dimensional design as an adjunct to the well-known symbolism. Design ranging from nearly realistic representation to abstraction resulted from the application of the principles of this system.—from Northwest Coast Indian Art“A genuinely analytical study of the basic elements of form which characterizes a particular aboriginal art... . The text is clear and brings truly fresh understanding and appreciation to a complex art; it also contributes a concept of analysis which should be applied to other areas. The book is well designed and very well illustrated.”—Choice
