    This video examines the work of Native American artists in the Pacific Northwest and how their wood carvings of totem poles, ceremonial masks and sculptures is part of a broader cultural renaissance. It features interviews with numerous Native American artists, illustrations of their art works as seen in public sites, museums and art galleries, and archival footage and photos of the region's Native American history. Scenes of potlatch feasts and ceremonial dances reveal how art is seen in Native American culture as an integral part of everyday life.
