Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art presents BODY LANGUAGE: Reawakening Cultural Tattooing of the Northwest

Design
Prior to the 1885 Potlatch ban, the art of tattooing and piercing was integral to Northwest Indigenous ceremony and social rank. Today, these traditions are re-emerging not as mere decoration, but to provide healing, protection and a meaningful sense of belonging. Uncover the symbolic and distinctive designs for skin, and their relationship to traditional clothing, rock art, jewellery, basketry, and weaving.
