Dancing Mask — Nootka

Dancing Mask — Nootka

from 15.00

From Edward Curtis’ Field Notes:

“Masks were worn on the top of the head. Like the others they danced first at the house of Tsahwasip, and went on through the village. The performance of various dances continued until morning. If any visitors had come before they were finished, it would have been necessary to repeat them.” – Edward S. Curtis
