Fine example of Indigenous Art from the Northwest Coast First Nations of Canada. The homelands of the Kwakwaka''wakw -'speakers of Kwakwala' - or Kwakiutl First Nations are just north of the Coast Salish peoples. The territory stretches from Alert Bay, on Vancouver Island''s Northeast Coast, to the adjacent mainland covering the many islands inbetween. Masters of art and drama, the Kwakiutl traditionally spent half their year living within family clans, and half the year within secret societies that performed masked dances in winter ceremonies. These ceremonies overshadowed the pageantry and spectacle of all the other potlatching nations of the pacific coast.Joe Wilson - First Nations Artist was born in 1966 to the Kwakwaka'wakw Hak'wesagame' Tribe Joe a descendant of the'Namgis First Nation, is grandson of Chief Alvin Edgar Alfred. Joes carving began at age 21 after being exposed to the work of master carver Willie Seaweed. Joe is well known for his very detailed oriented wood carvings and his elaborate silver, copper and gold jewelry.
