Yakotlus — Quatsino

from 15.00

From Edward Curtis’ Field Notes:

“Of medium stature, the Kwakiutl are as a rule well formed and strongly built. The face is very characteristic, being usually high and with a prominent, frequently hooked nose not found among any other North Pacific tribes. Head flattening was an invariable practice, and most of the elderly people now living have artificially lengthened heads.” – Edward Curtis

The North American Indian, Volume 10, The Kwakiutl, 1915. Portfolio plate no. 347.
