This unique exhibition honors and showcases the outstanding California Indian Artists who live and create their art along the Klamath River. This landscape of mountains and rivers contains the ancient homelands of the Karuk, Yurok, and Hupa tribes, their ancient village sites and sacred ceremonial places, as well as many places in the natural world that are part of their inherited mythical landscape and of their ongoing cultural and spiritual life.
