Colouring Journal: Northwest Coast First Nations & Native Art is a 34-page adult colouring book journal from Native Northwest. This publishing company supports and promotes First Nations artists from the Northwest Coast. This Colouring Journal is much more than a colouring book for adults. Each of the 17 art pages offers a reflection and guided reading inspiration. The first image reflects on the connections among all creation including the sun. The reflection page asks the viewer to consider ways the sun connects to a person’s mood. Other pages present ideas about gratitude, knowledge, humour, cooperation, transformation, adaptability, community, protector, loyalty, patience, beauty, ancestors, storytelling, journeying together, and awakening the spirit. The line drawings by the individual artists are identified by name and nation. The imagery reflects the key animals, birds, and cultural concepts of the Northwest First Nations such as the Kwakwaka’wakw, Coast Salish, Bella Bella, Haida, Haisla, Heiltsuk, Tsimshian, and Namgis. An excellent introduction for secondary students or anyone looking for an understanding of Northwest Coast design and symbols.
