Description by Artist: No description available
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Loon and fish shown united. Fish watch the sky and have the knowledge of the sun, stars and moon. In this way the Fish Clan hold the most intelligence and are the peoples philosophers. They are also advisers to the Chief Clans. The loon dives and sees the happenings inside the water. In this way the Loon Clan is known as the Inside Chief as they are responsible for settling disputes and issues within their home community. In decision system, the following case would take place: the season has been drier than usual. The loon clan thinks that it may be a good idea to change the location of the summer camp. They have come to this decision because there will be a smaller harvest for berries and a higher chance for forest fires. The speaker(s) from the loon clan must present their case with the fish clan.
