Seven award-winning films in which David Attenborough relates the masterpieces of tribal art to the people and places that produced them.
2: Crooked Beak of Heaven
The Indians of the north-west coast of America were once savage head-hunters with gigantic war canoes which carried them through the freezing waters of the Northern Pacific in search of their gruesome trophies.
Their chiefs were obsessed with rank and privilege, and they proclaimed their status with lofty totem poles, the largest wooden sculptures in the world. In spectacular ceremonies called pot-latches they indulged in competitive displays of wealth, often destroying valuable possessions in their attempt to outdo a rival.
Potlatching was outlawed for many years but survived, and each summer many thousands of dollars in gifts change hands as the chiefs compete once again for the highest standing among their people.
Continuously fascinating. (OBSERVER) Attenborough's programmes are a luscious feast for the eye ... a superior series. (SUNDAY TIMES)
