Children of the Sky

Gitxsan Works by Arlene Ness

"I am a member of the Giskaast clan and a proud descendant of the Children of the Sky. 
When I carve faces, I carve my ancestors and the Gitxsan spirits.
Each carving represents ancient Gitxsan legends and my family lineage, which is proprietary knowledge held as history by my people. They are my ancestors and the ancestors of the Feather Clan, the Children of the Sky."
