S’abadeb The Gifts: Pacific Coast Salish Art and Artists
Coast Salish oral traditions, history and artistry from prehistory to the present is captured in this visually stunning book.
A principal at the heart of Salish culture is a reciprocal exchange of physical, spiritual and intangible gifts, including songs, spirit powers, titles, names, food, natural resources and artistic creations. The term for “gifts” in Lushootseed, a Coast Salish dialect, is S’abadeb and this book illuminates the concept by exploring the intersection of art with ceremony, oral traditions, the land, and contemporary realities.
