The way home / David A. Neel.

Neel, David, (author.).


"David Neel was an infant when his father, a Kwakwaka'wakw artist, died, triggering events that would separate him from the traditions of his homeland. When the aspiring photographer saw a mask carved by an ancestor in a Texas museum twenty-five years later, the encounter inspired him to return home and follow in his father's footsteps. Drawing on memory, legend, and his own art, Neel recounts his struggle to reconnect with his culture and become an accomplished Kwakwaka'wakw artist. His memoir is a testament to the strength of the human spirit to overcome great obstacles and to the power and endurance of Indigenous culture and art."-- Provided by publisher.
