"Inuksuk" - #Haida / #Tlingit Style Inuksuk Art

The #Inuksuk (Inukshuk) is a cairn built by stacking rocks, often in the shape of a standing person. These cairns were built by the Inuit and other peoples of the Arctic regions. The Inuksuk were often placed as landmarks and guideposts. This symbol seemed to be a very fitting image for the Standing Rock protest. Done in the Pacific Northwest Coast art style that I love so much, I placed it on a background circle painted with India ink to represent "water is life".

^MM - Received the following lovely review via email, from a customer who has purchased 8 of my prints! - https://www.merleesmoods.com/reviews/

"I received the beautiful prints and was very surprised to see the quality was over the top, as an embroidery shop that once embroidered native American art on fleece garments for the Makah tribe in the Seattle area the prints were an example of extreme care in artistry. I love the difference in colors and the paper the prints were on was excellent quality."

"Pacific Hunt" in PURPLE - Haida Orca, Tlingit Killer Whale Art Print, Native American, First Nations Art.

This is the first piece I did in the #Haida / #Tlingit style. This is the seventh piece done in the Haida / Tlingit style. Being born on Vancouver Island in Canada, and growing up in the Yukon Territory, this style has a very special place in my heart. I created this one to be a bit less traditional than my other pieces, making him a bit more curvy. I really wanted to show the distinctive black and white coloring of the #Orca. As Pacific Dream is female, this one is male, as can be seen by the much larger dorsal. The killer whale, or Orca, is an especially powerful and beautiful symbol to me.

The Orca symbolizes family, romance, longevity, community and travel. Also considered the wolf of the sea, the killer whale shares some qualities of the wolf and the human. They have a very cooperative and communal way of life.

These Native American & First Nations (American Indian) art prints make exceptional gifts for any art lover, and for many occasions, including Christmas, Birthday, New Home, Wedding, and more! Bring a piece of Pacific Northwest Coastal art into your home as unique wall décor, or give as a unique, spiritual, and meaningful gift. The style is based on the Haida and Tlingit tribal art style from the Canadian Pacific Coast. Uniquely spiritual, these depictions of totem and spirit animals of Native American & First Nations peoples, represent the beliefs of the #indigenous people of North America.

"Pacific Dream" in BLUE - Haida Orca, Tlingit Killer Whale Art Print, Native American, First Nations Art.

This is the first piece I did in the #Haida / #Tlingit style. Because I was born on Vancouver Island in Canada, and grew up in the Yukon Territory, this style has a very special place in my heart. I adore this type of artwork, and spent a lot of time on this piece to remain true to the style, but also to include my own style as well. The killer whale, or #Orca, is an especially powerful and beautiful symbol to me.

The Orca symbolizes family, romance, longevity, community and travel. Also considered the wolf of the sea, the killer whale shares some qualities of the wolf and the human. They have a very cooperative and communal way of life.

"Kodiak" in GREEN - Haida Bear, Tlingit Grizzly Art Print, Native American, First Nations Art.

This is the fourth piece done in the #Haida / #Tlingit style. Because I was born on Vancouver Island in Canada, and grew up in the Yukon Territory, this style has a very special place in my heart. Growing up, #bears were a regular part of life, and we saw them on a regular basis. in fact, watching them at the dump was a common entertainment! When we were sick as kids, we were installed on a fold out couch with a bear hide covering us. The #grizzly bear is a powerful symbol, and a powerful animal. The #Kodiak bear, specific to the Kodiak Island area of Alaska, is the most massive of these bears.

"The Traveler" in RED - Haida, Tlingit Sea Turtle Art Print, Native American, First Nations Art.

This is the third piece done in the #Haida / #Tlingit style. Because I was born on Vancouver Island in Canada, and grew up in the Yukon Territory, this style has a very special place in my heart. The #turtle is a symbol of the earth, and North American is referred to by some tribes as Turtle Island. In symbolism, the turtle is about walking your path with patience, serenity and determination. It is about peace, the taking of time, the slow enjoyment of life.

"Thunderer" in GREEN - Haida Buffalo, Tlingit Bison Art Print, Native American, First Nations Art.

This is the sixth piece done in the #Haida / #Tlingit style. While I was at an art festival recently, I had a visitor ask if I had, or would do, a #buffalo design. So here it is!

While the #Bison was not an integral part of the Pacific Northwest tribes, it was of paramount importance to the plains tribes. The buffalo provided for a great majority of resources that the people required; food, hide, fur, and artifacts used in ritual and religion.

The Melody" in RED - Haida, Tlingit Wolf Art Print, Native American, First Nations Art. Great Christmas Gift!

This is the fifth piece done in the #Haida / #Tlingit style. After completing the Steampunk Wolf, I was sure that I wanted to do the same pose in the Haida style. A standing and howling Native American wolf.

The #wolf is a very powerful# totem, and represents loyalty, family and communication. A very social and intelligent animal, like the Killer Whale, the wolf has a strong likeness to the human spirit.
