American Indian culture
What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our
Kwakiutl language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Kwakiutl tribe and their society. Please note that Kwakiutls and other
American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Kwakiutl history is interesting and
important, but the Kwakiutl Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Kwakiutl link to add.
