Winner, 2014 Melva J. Dwyer Award, Art Libraries Society of North America

This work allows every contributor remarkable latitude, creativity, and indeed questions many long-held assumptions in the field, and posits fresh notions on contemporaneity. It also works to suggest what might be appropriate, respectful, and well-informed means of appreciating, sharing, and studying ceremonial objects, and the Native Northwest cultures which imbued them with life. -- Michelle Paquette, ARLIS/NA Reviews, 2014

In unsettling the conventions that have shaped "the idea of Northwest Coast Native art," this book takes a central place in the lively, often heated, and now global, debates about what constitutes Native art and who should decide.
