Description

In this work, Jeannette C. Armstrong and Douglas Cardinal share their visions and insights into creativity from the perspectives of their Native ancestries. This book exposes the intricate processes behind the Native worldview as interpreted by two highly creative and talented artists whose art is an expression of their identities as Aboriginal people.
