Cicero August, Master Salish carver works on a talking stick at his makeshift workshop in Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. Talks about carving history and his ancestor's stories. Talks about leaving boarding school and Simon Charlie insisted Cicero carve, Worked under Cicero for four years, what knives to use etc. It came to a point where you couldn't tell what carving was his and what one's is Cicero. It got to a point where Cicero could do Simon Charlie's style but Charlie could do Cicero's style. With modern knives and tools carving it's more the dollar value than the artwork these days. Having a hard time staying with the art. People are in a hurry, it's something you just can't pump out. It loses the value of the artwork itself. The dollar has taken it's toll on our work, but people have to eat and pay bills. No, one has the time or the money these days. Cicero has been trying to get the Cowichan tribe's to sponsor a ongoing program to teach the kids the art of carving and canoe making. There is only three people in the Cowichan valley that make canoe's, where as, everybody made canoes back then. Canoe making is an art. You have to know what the canoe is for, there are various different types of canoes for rivers, swamps, lake, seagoing etc. and paddles for each occasion. Everything had a purpose. Canoes are very important to the Salish people. Our transportation. The sea was the highway. To visit people and trade, go to reserve to reserve and trade. "I will be building a seagoing canoe, a 24 foot seagoing canoe" Using modern power tools' I'm from the black and decker tribe" Cicero jokes. Talks about using animal parts and jade as traditional tools now we have hard steel. My knives are made for my style. Knife making is an art in itself. Used to make his own tools but it is too time consumming, people are in a rush to get the carvings.
