Body Language: Reawakening Cultural Tattooing of the Northwest explores the rich history and artistry of Indigenous tattooing of the Northwest coast.

Photographs, cultural belongings, and contemporary art reveal how these previously disrupted and banned traditions are now reawakening through the efforts of the Indigenous artists featured in this exhibition.

The Burke Museum invites visitors to experience the stories and celebrate the resilience of Indigenous tattoo practitioners and those who wear the visual language of their ancestors on their bodies.

Body Language: Reawakening Cultural Tattooing of the Northwest will be on view at Seattle’s The Burke Museum Nov. 6, 2022 – Apr. 16, 2023.

For nighttime advocates, Burke Museum is open until 8 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month. Most other Seattle museums are never open past 5:30 p.m. It’s mind-boggling.

Every Museum in America could stay open late at least one night a month for those who cannot, or do not want to, visit by day.
