Even during a pandemic, Indigenous chefs continue to sustain their communities.
Through art, a collective of Black-Indigenous artists is advancing social justice.
This cedar woven crest hat features the painted face of a Raven, one of the animals that represent the two moieties that balance the Tlingit world. On the hat’s reverse is the face of a whale, from which the Raven is said to be bursting forth. The painting on the hat is by Naak’ushtáa, a Dakhl’aweidí carver. It was repatriated to the Central Council Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska on behalf of the Tlex’ L’ooknax.ádi (One Coho) clan in 2014.
