Emily Carr

Though not of First Nations heritage, Emily Carr  is an important artist in First Nation’s history. Originally from Victoria British Columbia.
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.
