lumbia, Carr was fascinated with the First Nations Culture, and used her art as a method of recording all that she learned. Assumptions about her relationship with the people she learned from can be made by examining her nickname, the Nuu-chah-nulth people called her Klee Wyck which means “laughing one”. Carr is incredibly famous for her totem paintings.
