  • A̲bumpa Kwikw (Mother Eagle) Necklace

    Corrine Hunt


    Sterling silver, Engraved
    Lapis Lazuli in Bezel setting

    Pendant Dimensions: 3.5 x 2.5″
    Necklace Length: 24″

    This amazing A̲bumpa Kwikw (Mother Eagle) Necklace was lovingly crafted by Corrine Hunt as a tribute to her late mother.

    The grand pendant is divided into two components which, combined, take the form of a Copper Shield. The bottom portion of the pendant features a front-facing Eagle design, while the top portion is set with a stunning piece of lapis lazuli. Each of these components come together perfectly to produce a beautiful and stately jewelry masterwork.

    While attending gem show in Tucson, Arizona, Corrine found this unique piece of lapis lazuli and immediately envisioned the top of portion of a copper shield. The opportunity to obtain a stone so perfectly suited to Northwest Coast art forms was impossible to pass up, so she purchased the lapis, as well as several other gemstones, with the intention of incorporating them into her 2021 solo exhibition – Kapiguxw’id: Iklegans dudakwo | Gathering: It’s good to see you [again].

    While the shape of the stone reminded her of a Copper, the lapis itself reminded Corrine of her mother. According to the artist, she absolutely loved lapis lazuli – especially in jewelry. In fact, when Corrine received her paycheque from her very first job, the first thing she spent her hard-earned money on was a lapis ring for her mother. Her fondness for the stone is what inspired Corrine to create a necklace in her honour.

  • Ukrainian Hummingbird Paddle

    Trace Yeomans


    Yellow Cedar wood, Acrylic paint

    “For this [paddle], I wanted to do something very unique and original. I decided to combine both my ethnic origins, using a traditional Haida-style design for the Hummingbird, with intertwining flowers on the black background. I borrowed this idea from Ukrainian Easter eggs, which have black backgrounds and brightly coloured designs or flowers.” – Trace Yeomans

  • Hecate Strait Scarf – State I

    Susan Point RCA


    100% Silk; Limited Edition of 100

    Exclusively available through Coastal Peoples Gallery

    “Hecate Strait is a wide but shallow strait between Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) and the mainland of British Columbia.  Hecate Strait, because it is so shallow, is especially susceptible to violent storms and weather; therefore, has always been revered by the Northwest Coast First Nations Peoples.

    The shallow waters make it an abundant place for marine life, especially for spotting Orcas and Humpback Whales breaching.

    In this scarf design, I’ve illustrated the turbulent waters, abundance of Orcas, and Salmon.

    Orcas are great guardians of the ocean, with Seals as slaves and Dolphins as warriors.  Orcas are closely related to humans; I was told many legends as a child of the whale people and their villages beneath the sea.

    Salmon are a symbol of abundance, wealth and prosperity because Salmon are the primary food source for the people of the Northwest Coast.  It is also symbolic of dependability and renewal representing the provider of life.  Salmon in pairs are good luck.”

  • Sedna

    Oviloo Tunnillie RCA



    As goddess of the ocean, Sedna sets strict rules about the proper way to treat the animals of the hunt, which the Inuit require for sustenance. This includes proper treatment of the animals’ spirit when killed for food. If she feels the rules have been broken, she cuts off the supply of food. When this happens, the Inuit tribal shaman is required to take a mystical journey to the bottom of the ocean to speak to the goddess. It is considered the most dangerous journey an Inuit shaman is called upon to make.

    Upon arrival at the bottom of the sea the shaman is required to comb Sedna’s hair, because Sedna has no fingers to comb it herself, and to find out what the tribe has done wrong that the food has been cut off. The shaman then makes a deal with Sedna, promising that if the tribe corrects whatever transgressions it has made, the goddess will return their food supply. The shaman then returns to the tribe with the list of things the goddess requires to be done to get the food back.
