Event Information

Artwork of the Suquamish and Duwamish tribes of central Puget Sound reflects an interdependence with the natural world. This ecological ethic encompasses every aspect of the artistic process, as demonstrated through ancient artifacts made of wood, bark, roots, and textile fibers. These natural materials were transformed into elegant carvings, baskets, weavings, and architecture that still carry knowledge through generations. This lecture series examines historical utilitarian art from tribes of the Puget Sound area and explores their cultural, spiritual, and environmental significance.
