Description

Native peoples' connection with the drum, dances and masks is deeply rooted. From ancient times, in their Big Houses (longhouses), Northwest Coast Native cultures have conducted ceremonies that included masks. And still today, during potlatches tribal crests are displayed to demonstrate reverence for ancestors, and to reinforce knowledge and understanding of the legends and who owns them. Masks continue to be used in ceremonies, potlatches, and even a Tlingit version of Shakespeare's Hamlet. This colouring book, in bringing awareness of these ancient traditions to children, is a celebration of masks of both past and present, and honours the lives and dances of the indigenous people of the Northwest Coast.
