EXCERPT FROM TEXT:
“The Canadian Constitution recognizes three groups of Aboriginal people: First Nations, Métis and Inuit. These are three distinct peoples with unique histories, languages, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.” – Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, Canada.
note: The Métis has an inter-cultural relationship with Europeans so as to make a new culturally hybrid art form.The First Nations and Inuit Peoples are not hybrids.
There are 4 geographical regions for the aboriginal artists. These are:
NorthWest Coast, bounded by Pacific Ocean
Great Plains, in the middle of lower Canada.
Eastern Woodlands, bounded by the Atlantic Ocean & also encompassing the Great Lakes.
Arctic and Subarctic, the largest geographically, with its main bodies of water being the Arctic Ocean and Hudson Bay.
note: Some argue that this can be subdivided into more than four groups.
During the 19th and the first half of the 20th century, the Canadian government’s goal was assimilation of the Indigenous peoples, including their art work.This changed in the second half of the 20th century and continues in the 21st century, to wit: Aboriginal artists are encouraged to celebrate anew their own art traditions.
This show is organized by geographic region and aboriginal tribe. Most of the tribes have regions. The artists are born into those tribes in those regions. In a few cases, there is overlap where the tribe is in more than one region. In that case, the geographical region where the artist was born is used. The artists clearly identify themselves by their tribes. Every effort was made to discover the artist’s tribe. If it is not listed, it was not capable of being found online using due diligence.
