In the Spirit of the Ancestors

Contemporary Northwest Coast Art at the Burke Museum

SERIES:
University of Washington Press
In the Spirit of the Ancestors celebrates the vitality of contemporary Pacific Northwest Coast Native art with a comprehensive examination of a selection of works – from masks, house posts, and jewelry to cedar bark shoes – from the Burke Museum's collection of more than 2,400 late-twentieth and early-twenty-first century pieces. Essays focus on contemporary art while exploring the important historical precedents on which so many artists rely for training and inspiration.

Wright is curator of Native American art the Burke Museum, director of the Bill Holm Center for the Study of Northwest Coast Art, and professor of art history at the University of Washington, Seattle. Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse is assistant director of the Bill Holm Center for the Study of Northwest Coast Art.
