Canadian Art. 'Wii Muk' willixw (Art Wilson) is an hereditary chief of the Gitxsan people from northern British
Columbia; in addition to being an artist, he is also an inland fisherman and a
teacher of art and culture, and plays an active role in the governance of his
nation; this volume is a collection of his red and black prints that chronicle
the struggles for justice of First Nations people everywhere - from Canada and
Wounded Knee, to Chiapas and Nigeria; it also records the peoples' spirited
resistance to oppression; Art Wilson's unique blend of traditional northwest
coast symbolism with modern-day images is a rich and memorable expression of
First nations' consciousness. Signed by Art Wilson on title page. (New Society Publishers. Gabriola Island, BC, Canada. First Edition. 1996)
