A new exhibition will open in March at the British Museum in London, England. Where the Thunderbird Lives: Cultural Resistance on the Northwest Coast of North America. It is the British Museum’s first exhibition focusing on the Pacific Northwest Coast. The exhibition commemorates the tradition of the Thunderbird. One side of the exhibition will display themes of strength showcasing 2,500 year old stone tools and early historic weapons. The other side will feature contemporary art and regalia from the Northwest Coast collections as testament to the innovative practices and economic adaptation of these thriving communities following the arrival of Europeans in the 18th Century. The exhibition continues until August 27, 2017. http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/where_the_thunderbird_lives.aspx
