Description

Haida artist Charles Edenshaw (1839–1920) is one of the best-known Northwest Coast artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His works, in many different media, have been studied, analyzed, and discussed by at least two generations of Northwest Coast art historians and anthropologists. In this lecture Margaret Blackman looks at Edenshaw the artist as a central figure in the creation of Northwest Coast objects.

Margaret Blackman is professor emerita in the Department of Anthropology, State University of New York at Brockport. Her most recent book is Upside Down: Seasons among the Nunamiut.
