"Manuel Salazar, born in Seattle in 1966, is affiliated with the Coast Salish Cowichan group in Duncan, BC and the Coast Salish group in Ladysmith, BC through his mother's descent. His father was non-Native. While adhering to traditional Coast Salish iconography and legends as the foundation of his art, Salazar interprets these in a vibrant, contemporary, and unique form. Although versatile in all media, he is best known for his serigraphic work." Source: Pacific Editions artists files.
