I’ve always like clan house designs. They’re large scale and meant to be discernible from a canoe approaching the village. This one is a Bear design from the Chief Shakes house in Wrangell, Alaska.

This painting represents a killer whale with a seal in the body. The design shows a killer whale surfacing, with water spouts represented by humanoid figures. The various humanoid creatures surrounding the killer whale are water churning, spraying and splashing. #tlingit #alaskanative #native #indigenousart https://stoningtongallery.com/artwork/breath-of-the-killer-whale/

https://stoningtongallery.com “Tree of Life” Acrylic on birch panel. In the village of Kake, where this artist is from, the used to be an old spruce tree, hundreds of years old. It was so huge, its lower boughs created a canopy; a shelter. There was a fresh water stream that ran year round, and the ground was covered with soft moss. Some women even gave birth there. My brother-in-law, Mike Jackson, said that tree was known as the “Tree of Life.”

‘Now the national, regional and local levels of the church together are paying roughly $950,000 in for the harm and pain the closure caused. The amount is noteworthy. A “down payment” is being presented to Sealaska Heritage Institute and the Central Council of the & Indian Tribes of Alaska on Oct. 9, 2023.’

(The values of the actor, who framed her Valentino couture with jewellery at Cannes Film Festival, chime with the mantra followed by Jennifer Younger, who says, “Looking back takes me forward.” Younger, who is of the Eagle clan and now lives in Sitka, looks to Tlingit form-line designs and spruce-root basket weaving patterns to inform her freehand pieces, each of which is – just like Lily’s silver and coral necklace..)
