Redefining Each Other A black and red raven, REDefining each other A black and red raven, refining each other In Northwest Coast cultures, raven is an agent of change and transformation. The ravens in this design symbolize contemporary Coast Salish artists redefining each other through influence and inspiration. As a contemporary Coast Salish artist, I believe in humbly acknowledging the influence and inspiration of my contemporaries, established and emerging. Unfortunately, in the politics of post-colonial disempowerment, some people are not always encouraging or supportive of each other. This design is a tribute to new Coast Salish artists who have inspiRED me, such as Dylan ThomasStuart PagaduanAngela Marston, Jason Gobin, and Thomas Cannell. These young Coast Salish artists have inspiRED me since my print "Redefining Each Other."
