O Siyam will showcase the enormous diversity of Canadian Aboriginal art with full-colour images, descriptive text and critical commentary. This beautiful, collector's edition will highlight the importance and relevance of Canada's Aboriginal artists in an exhibition of unprecedented scope. Much of the commissioned art will be on permanent display at competition and non-competition Olympic and Paralympic Winter venues after the Games. Artwork featured in the book will vary from the traditional to the contemporary and will include a range of art by both major Aboriginal artists and emerging new talent. Descriptions of the artists and their work are being written in consultation with Aboriginal curators and historians.

From the Inside Flap:

 

There are many Aboriginal stories about Transformation - stories danced at potlatches and passed down through generations, which still resonate today. Their themes continue speaking to the souls of contemporary Aboriginal people, but also to a wider audience. In this extraordinary book, a new generation of Aboriginal artists has created a stunning celebration of visual art - works that are transformative and portray a rich and flourishing culture, each in a unique and powerful way.

On trouve de nombreux récits autochtones au sujet de la transformation. Il s'agit d'histoires que l'on danse à des potlatchs, que l'on transmet de génération en génération et qui perdurent de nos jours. Les thèmes de ces riches histoires culturelles portent sur l'âme des peuples autochtones d'aujourd'hui et sur la société en général. La sagesse et l'expérience humaine qu'offrent ces histoires ne se limitent pas à de simples paroles. Dans le superbe présent ouvrage, une nouvelle génération d'artistes autochtones a créé une célébration emballante des arts visuels. Chacune des œuvres présentées peint le tableau d'une riche culture florissante tout en offrant des éléments transformateurs uniques et puissants.
