Listening to my Inner Spirit - Designs by Nytom
Listening to My Inner Spirit

Nytom sometimes finds himself challenged with situations and not sure what direction he should turn or what action to take. There is a comfort, however, in knowing that his ancestors guide his actions and, like the wolves in this design, whisper to him and offer advice. All one has to do is listen.

Cycle of Life - Designs by Nytom
Cycle of Life

There are many events in nature that represent the cycle of life. Among many coastal tribes, the cycle of life is heralded by the spawning of the salmon each year. Young salmon migrate to their village far out in the ocean, and then after several years at sea endure an arduous journey fraught with dangers to return to their birth waters. The Salmon would always return because the tribes honored the Salmon People in their First Salmon Ceremonies. In doing so, they also teach the people to continue to overcome all odds–to survive and keep their traditional cultures alive.

5 villages of the Makah - Designs by Nytom
5 villages of the Makah

In the territory of the Makah people, their lands were occupied by five separate villages. On the ocean, their property reached as far as the eye could see. The purpose of such a large domain was to feed the people of the five villages all year long. These included De-aht (Neah Bay), Ozette, Ba’eyda, Tsoo-Yess, and Why-atch. To occupy such territory was a big responsibility, having access to the ocean and the broad Strait between home and Vancouver Island. When they enterthe Strait of Juan de Fuca, Europeans found that the Makah controlled traffic in both directions, and they needed to respect the inhabitants and give value for safe travels.

Whale Hunter - Limited Edition Giclee’ Print - Designs by Nytom
Whale Hunter

The Makah have hunted whales on the open ocean since time and memorial. Whales have provided Makah people with food and valuable raw materials, and the practice continues to be a source of spiritual and ceremonial strength. In 1999, the Makah successfully hunted a grey whale, exemplifying the Makahs’ ability to control their own affairs and revitalize this rich culture as traditional coastal people.

Mathews Medicine Bears - Designs by Nytom
Matthew’s Medicine Bear

The inspirations for creating Nytom’s designs usually comes from interactions with people of many backgrounds. They don’t have to be Native for him to feel their spirit. This design illustrates the transformation of one man’s medicine into a Bear. Many years ago, a friend wandered away from his family. Twenty-two years later he came back. Finding his Medicine Bear helped him to realize how important his two boys were to him, and was reason enough to change his life into one that was becoming of any father. He now has grandchildren.
