A reference for BC Indigenous communities and museums, created by and for Indigenous people working in repatriation.

“Our late friend and brother Rod Naknakim said, ‘Reconciliation and repatriation cannot and should not be separated. The two must anchor our conversation and guide our efforts as we move forward collectively with common purpose and understanding.’”

—Dan Smith, BCMA Indigenous Advisory Chair, Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre

This book was prepared in partnership with the Haida Gwaii Museum at Kay Llnagaay.

Providing a step-by-step overview of various techniques, the book also introduces the specifics of formline design, highlights the traits of the most common animal symbols used, offers tips for identification, and features biographies and works from over fifty of the Coast’s best-known jewelers. Finally, it delves into the history of the art form, from the earliest horn and copper cuff bracelets to cutting-edge contemporary works and everything in between.

The Royal Museum Shop is operated by the Royal BC Museum Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of merchandise go directly towards supporting the many fine programs and special events at the Royal BC Museum.
