In Canada, the Native people are called Inuit.
In Alaska Native people are known as Eskimos.
The ethographic artistic expression of the Arctic peoples is as old as the Vikings and the ancient tribes that crossed the Bering Strait.
Although it was never considered as "art" by its makers. (Even today, there is no word in the Inuit language for "art".

You'll find examples of Alaskan and Inuit material culture in museums and private collections world-wide. The Arctic art work that makes its way to market in the
21st Century is that which is made primarily for sale, but is faithful to the tribal traditions that have survived the influence of European traders and missionaries.

Indigenous Arctic art provides powerful imagery and a potent history of these resilient people. The finest Alaskan Eskimo carvers continue to work in wood, the walrus tusks, ossified whale bone and baleen with a finesse and grace that is stunning.*

The finest Inuit artists carve arresting shamanistic images and compelling effigies of indigenous wildlife from soapstone in a tradition that became popular in the 1930s under the guidance and encouragement of the Canadian government.

Aboriginals: Art of the First Person is proud to present outstanding pieces in both Eskimo and Inuit genres.Incidentally, some people include the tribes of the Pacific Northwest in the Arctic tradition. We prefer to include the Tlingit, Tsimshian, Haida. Kwakiutl, Salish and Nootka in our American Indian Room, which is where you will find their work.

*Please be advised: Due to the laws of the United States and Canada, works made with parts from marine mammals may not be imported into either country. Therefore any carving we sell that contains walrus tusk, whale bone or other marine mammal material will only be shipped
within the United states.

Additional Arctic art may be found at
our Ebay store.

We interrupt this program for a special announcement: Now any item with a purchase price exceeding $200 may be purchased on extended payments through our Collector's Club.
