    Dorothy Savage Joseph Birch Bark Tray

    Dorothy Savage Joseph Birch Bark Tray This birch bark tray by Dorothy Savage Joseph, an Athabascan Indian originally from Holy Cross, Alaska, came from the estate of a gentleman who lived in Alaska during the late 1990s and early 2000s. It has a lot going for it, including a pleasing shape, good quality bark, nice contrast between the dark inner bark and the white outer bark, and beautifully dyed root lashings (likely spruce root) woven into a checked pattern. Aesthetically, it is a great vessel all around. Joseph is the author of Fishcamp. Click or tap here to see the book on Amazon. 10 3/4 inches long x 7 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches high.

    ,
    Read about the artist... Susie Silook: Qavaanguq Susie Silook, one of the most original artists to come out of Alaska, created a major piece based on a dream she had: "I dreamt I was in the bow of a boat with an unidentified man at the helm, and the land in front of us felt like home. We saw movement to the left, front, and I got worried that a whale would overturn the boat. The whale breached, backwards, from our left, and somersaulted over us, entering the water on our left. My heart was pounding like mad! The man said I had to kill it, and I was vehemently refusing, but he said :"if it offers itself to you, you have to take it. You have to make the sacrifice So in the end the bowhead is draped over the boat like a big fish This depiction of the dream includes the whale in two positions simultaneously: morphing from the human head and emerging from the human feet. It includes a second human emerging from the torso and spirit figures painted across the body. Carved from whalebone and mammoth ivory; blue and sienna pigments; wood and brass base. 41 3/4" across; 37 3/8" high, including base

    Red Bird Beaded Purse

    ,
    "In 1876, Red Bird was born Gertrude Simmons in Greenwood, NE - the same year as the Battle of the Little Big Horn. She was born to a Yankton Dakota mother and a European-American father. Her Dakota name was Zitkala-sa, meaning "Red Bird". She attended the Quaker school for Indians in Wabash, Indiana; Earlham College in Richmond, IN; and a music conservatory in Boston. In 1902 she married Raymond T. Bonnin, also a Dakota, and had a son. "I was impressed by her photo and the story of her life. She was a remarkable woman of great accomplishments, professional writing and talent with the violin. Simply beading her portrait is but a small and humble homage. This woman gave twenty-five years by using her intelligence and gift for words in an organized effort to benefit the greater indigenous community. She is a role model and a muse. I admire her. To me she represented a change in indigenous life in how she lost her place in the Dakota world without finding a comfortable place in the white world. And I do understand just a little of how it feels. A woman who came from a warrior society has proved that that in her case the pen is mightier than the sword." "I have beaded the bag to be monochromatic in color. It can be displayed on the wall or worn during a special occasion. Other beaded bags of mine of similar design have been awarded first and second place awards at Northern Plains Indian Art Market Sioux Falls, SD and an honorable mention at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market Phoenix, AZ." Karen Beaver Materials: white buckskin leather, solid brass beads, brass hawk bells, antique green (watermelon) beads, cloth, and glass seed beads (size 13 charlottes, size 14, size 11 delica white satin and 24k gold beads). Bag is 7" x 5 3/4"; 14" x 7 1/2" including fringe (excludes strap)
