Tlingit Warrior by Una-Ann Moyer celebrates cultural influences. The Tlingit people were indigenous to the Pacific Northwest Coast of America. They call themselves Lingit – People of the Tides. They have a rich and dynamic heritage that respects family traditions and honours oral history. The Tlingit society is a matrilineal society that is divided into two kinship groups: The Raven and the Eagle, which in turn are divided into clans and subdivided into lineages. While economic well-being is appreciated, they place a higher value on art, spirituality, kindness and generosity.
