The collection focuses on the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest and their many and varied artistic and material expressions. The records in the collection are images brought together in a vast mosaic of this remarkable tradition. It seeks to promote an appreciation and understanding of the art, culture and history of Northwest Coast First Nations through the use of early explorers' drawings, sketches, paintings and original photography. It is the Centre's hope that this material will aid in the creation of a dialogue between members of First Nation communities, students, scholars, artists and others who wish to explore this unique artistic tradition.
