11/10/20. This is the first collection of essays, articles and interviews about the Nuu-chah-nulth people, who live along the west coast of Vancouver Island (Canada) and the Olympic Peninsula (USA). Alan L. Hoover has assembled a balance of views from inside and outside Nuu-chah-nulth history, culture and art. He presents the collection in four parts:In 'Voices', the Mowachaht-Muchalaht and Huu-ay-aht nations recount their own histories, and describe who and where they are today. 'Histories' offers fascinating accounts of recent history from outside the Nuu-chah-nulth culture and ancient histories and legends from inside. 'Objects' highlights the different interests of those who create objects and those who collect them: are these objects art? Finally, 'Journeys' relates the personal and spiritual growth of three Nuu-chah-nulth artists, and how their creations speak about where they came from and where they are now.
