Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Tookoome frequently combined the everyday and the shamanic worlds such as in this print. In this image we see a transforming shaman jigging for fish and calling upon his helping spirits.  He is successful attracting and catching fish while enjoying his catch at the same time.
