Carving Out a Place in the World: Inuit Art of Canada


We venture north to the realm of the Inuit people of the eastern Arctic

over the past half-century: figurative carving. A look at its roots,

evolution and some living carvers. By Norman Vorano.



Bringing Tradition Forward: Contemporary Native Art at the Eiteljorg

contemporary Native arts acquisition and exhibition program, in

addition to its noteworthy Fellowship for Native American Fine Art,

launched in 1999. By Julianna Thibodeaux.

Back to the Future: David Robert Boxley


At the relatively tender age of 24, David Boxley (Tsimshian) of Juneau

has achieved a rare measure of professional success with his paintings

and woodcarvings, many based on centuries-old styles he has adopted

from his rich personal and tribal heritage. Plus, a preview of the June

2006 Eiteljorg Museum Indian Market in Indianapolis. By Gussie

Fauntleroy.

join together in solidarity at the North American Indigenous Games. By
