A superb collection of Northwest artifacts, especially large items such as totem, house and grave poles/crests, huge potlach masks, baskets etc that provide insight into the highly hierarchical social-spiritual organization of local tribes (Kwakiutl, Tlingit, Haida etc). Not enough space, so many items hidden in pull-out drawers and stuffed into overcrowded vitrines. I'd wish the devoted more space to Oceanic items (especially Papuan, Kiribati etc) some of which were spectacular.
The Museum clearly expands a huge amount of effort to assuage the sensitivities and sensibilities of local tribes, which includes the removal and return of significant objects. This seems to be handled well, and in a way that respects the natives without resorting to multiculturalist mumbo jumbo. I would have liked to see more videos of native ceremonies and performances (especially the winter ceremonies).
