Amerindian Art

Like Inuit art, Amerindian art of Canada entered its contemporary period during the latter half of the 20th century. It manifested itself through the Aboriginal art of the West Coast and Woodland Indian art.

Haida sculptor Bill Reid spearheaded artistic renewal in British Columbia at the end the 50's. Carved wooden totem poles and the traditional constructions of the Amerindian nations characterized the Aboriginal art of the West Coast.

The Woodland School, whose leader was Anishnaabe painter Norval Morrisseau, grouped together many artists from the 60's. They were also known as the "painters of legends", for their works and unique style expressed the beliefs, myths, and traditions of the Amerindian nations of the Great Lakes region.
