A Strong Law Bids Us Dance references a statement made by a Kwakwak’awkaw chief in the 1800s. According to tradition the dances, masks and potlatches are a responsibility or social obligation, similar to a law, and not to be taken lightly. The dancer in the photograph wears a Raven mask, which is one of the attendants of the Cannibal at the North End of the World. The photograph, by David A. Neel, is from a potlatch in Alert Bay and the border design was inspired by Northwest coast Native basket designs and pictographs.
