In the Hands of the Raven*

  • 1998 ----- color ----- 58 min ----- vhs
  • Examines one of the greatest and most artful cultures in human history: the indigenous people of Canada's Pacific Northwest coast. But this examination is not a distant anthropological exploration, nor as museum dust, but as a living legacy to the culture and artists who have created it. It weaves a rich tapestry through the dancers, the storytellers and the carvers who proudly carry the spirit of this vibrant living culture while also examining its role in contemporary society.
