Part of the Ravens and Eagles: Haida Art series

The granddaughter of weaver Selina Adams Peratrovich and daughter of Dolores Churchill, also a renowned weaver, Evelyn Vanderhoop creates the highly prized NaXine robe, or Chilkat blanket, a cedar bark and goat's wool textile that takes many years to complete. Traditionally, Chilkat blankets were a treasured item of First Nations nobility. While many assert that this weaving style is the domain of the Tsimshian and Tlingit people, Evelyn believes there is a strong connection between Tlingit, Tsimshian and Haida weaving. She details the history of this textile art and discusses her own process.
