Eskimo Inuit Throat Singers On Video

One of the most interesting cultural sounds is from the Eskimo Inuit from Canada's Artic region (note that in Canada, we do not generally use the term Eskimo but since it is still used in Alaska and elsewhere, we have included this term in this post - it is not meant to be used as a discriminatory term). Below is a short video of Inuit throat singers in action.

This post is also serving as a test post for our new Inuit Native American Indian Art Facebook page.

This video is also shown at YouTube Inuit Throat Singers or directly at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpstSRbBeXQ

Bio Of Northwest Native Canadian First Nations Artist

We have put up at our website a bio of Northwest Native Canadian First Nations artist Todd Baker who is our featured artist of our current limited edition prints at our gallery. He is the grandson of Chief Simon Baker of the Squamish Nation in North Vancouver, BC.

He began drawing for his tribe in his preteens and had world-renowned Canadian First Nations artist Bill Reid critique his first instrumental crest design. He has done numerous pieces for institutions and organizations around the world. These include limited editions for the Peace Federation of Canada, Teachers Federation of BC, Canadian Lacrosse association, design work for the Heart disease, Diabetes, Heart and Stroke foundation, the Cancer Society, the Kids fund and the Vancouver Opera House.

A full bio is at Northwest Native Canadian First Nations artist Todd Baker.

By the way, his Raven print is extremely rare since ONLY 40 were ever produced and there are only a few left. If you want to get a very rare print at a very reasonable price, check out his Raven print.

Northwest Native Art Prints Always Coming

We have a regular supply of Northwest Native art prints coming in every few weeks so if you like a print that you see on our gallery website, especially those by Todd Jason Baker, go ahead and order them. If you happen to order a print when we are out of that particular one, that's okay because we will hold your order in priority sequence of when it came in.

We won't charge your credit card until the new limited edition numbered Northwest Native art prints actually arrive at our gallery and we ship your print out to you. So there's no worry about being out of stock because if we happen to run low on a certain print, we will most likely have new ones coming in within two weeks and you will be in priority before the rest of the general public does.

For the Northwest Native art prints by Todd Baker, we have been assured that there are quite a lot left in existence maybe except for the Raven print which have a limited number left. But for the other ones like the Orca, the Eagle and the Speaker's Staff, there are plenty available for us to secure from the artist.
