Ahtsik'nuk - Carvings of the Nuu-chah-nulth
Living between the two extreme worlds of sea and sky, the Nuu-chah-nulth continue to grow and change with the material and social environments that surround them, always looking to maintain the delicate balance that they have held for millennia.
The Elders say that culture is always moving, like nature. If it doesn't move and change, it will cease to exist. This gathering of sculpture represents this growth and movement. It encourages the next generation to celebrate the art and culture of the Nuuchahnulth with loud, strong voices and to represent the traditional teachings with pride and respect.
