The Amazing Adventures of Larry and Mark

Volume 18  Yellowknife - Northwest Territories III (Art and Culture)

Art and Culture in the Northwest Territories

 

 

 

No more than 1/2 mile from the Old Town, we came upon the cliff face which was

carved and painted.

 

The sign says it all.

 

 

 

Very interesting online exhibits are at:

 The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Museum is full of the old and new,

art and technology, native and non-native.   Above are a few of the old

prospecting tools from the early miners.

 

 

Native clothes, clearly non-Arctic.  They may come from

Northwest Territories, but they look very much like

they wouldn't be out of place with Native American a thousand miles south.

 

 

Carving of bone and ivory has gone on for thousands of years.

 

 

Several dioramas showed the animals native to NWT. 

 

 

 

 

 

Dogrib legend. 

 

NWT artwork 

 

 

 This panel was outside a craft store in Yellowknife.

 

 

Finishing up soon!

Hope you liked it!
