Cultural Art collection Four

Art of the Haida Indians of the Pacific North WEst Coast of America and Canada

 

This collection of indigenous cultural embroidery designs is inspired by artworks by Native Haida Indians of the Pacific Northwest Coast of America and Canada.

Mostly found in red, white and black colors, each design represents a different animal commonly fond in this bold artwork.

The art of the the Native Indian Nations from the Northwest coast of North America and Canada lends itself perfectly to digitizing into machine embroidery designs. This wonderful art, rich yet simple has interested me for many years.

When I was a kid growing up in Chicago (which is an Indian word for "bad smell" I have been told!) my Uncle went to live in Anchorage Alaska. The first Christmas he sent our family gifts of place mats that were decorated with Haida art. We used those place mats every evening at supper. Each place mat was different and over the years I got to study each one. But until now, I did not understand the what the forms and picture represented. I have re-kindled my interest now and have had a great time researching images for this collection.

I bought a few books written and illustrated by a Native Indian gentleman, Northwest Native Art: Basic Forms By  Robert E. Stanley Sr. that teach people about Haida and similar art forms and how to draw the shapes. Great stuff if you want to read and learn and teach the kids. I found them at a neat website Pacific Northwest Shop. Go have a squiz at the cool stuff they have.
