Where the Power Is: Indigenous Perspectives on Northwest Coast Art, written by Karen Duffek, Bill McLennan, and Jordan Wilson, and in collaboration with the Museum of Anthropology, University of British Columbia, brings together contemporary Indigenous knowledge holders with extraordinary works of historical Northwest Coast art, that transcend the category of art or artifact.

Dozens of Indigenous artists and community members visited the Museum of Anthropology to engage with these objects and learn from the hands of their ancestors. The photographs and their commentaries speak to the connections between tangible and intangible cultural belongings; how art remains part of Northwest Coast peoples' ongoing relationships to their territories and governance; Indigenous experiences of reconnection, reclamation, and return; and critical and necessary conversations around the role of museums.

Accompanied by over 300 contemporary and historical photographs, this is a vivid and powerful document of Indigenous experiences of reconnection, reclamation, and return.
