Tsimshian Treasures

August 2008

“’It is like a time capsule has been found and we have just opened it,’ says the Tsimshian weaver, William White, in writing about the repatriated Dundas Collection. ‘What was found inside is a part of Tsimshian identity that was taken away but has found its way home after a long absence. The frustrations of many have been expressed in various statements. Why was this stuff allowed to be sold at auction when it was simply taken from us? It should be given back to the Tsimshian people.’”

“Tsimshian Treasures… correctly delves into the sad and long history of the attempts of the Tsimshian to bring these treasures and artifacts home. Tellingly the collection has the moniker of its longtime custodian, Dundas, not that of the original creators of these magnificent pieces of native Canadian history. Art is such a significant part of culture. Following the history of the important works is a wonderful catalog of the items beautifully photographed and explained.”
