Implementation of a traveling exhibit and a companion website on the art and culture of the coastal Salish people.

The Seattle Art Museum requests $400,000 to mount a traveling exhibition of the art and culture of the Pacific Northwest Native Coast Salish peoples. It includes 180 cultural treasures from 5500 BCE to contemporary artworks. The project is the first major show of its kind and sheds public recognition on a rich culture whose important contribution to this nation's history has often been overlooked. It will feature innovative uses of technology, including a multi-media Living Archive of songs, stories and oratory that will infuse the exhibition with the voices of the Salish people. Public programming for a wide audience will include a Native film festival, performances and demonstrations, school tours and culturally relevant curriculum materials. An audio guide will accompany the show too. Following Seattle (10/08-1/09) the show travels to the Heard Museum, Phoenix (2/09-6/09), then to the Royal British Columbia Museum, Victoria BC (10/09-2/10) during the Winter Olympics.
