Starting August 14th, according to Seattle PI, the Seattle Art Museum will host a Behind the Scenes: the Real Story of Quileute Wolves exhibit.

According to the exhibit's listing on SAM's website, "The wolf is central to the cultural beliefs of the Quileute Native Peoples of coastal Washington, and wolf imagery is prominent in their art forms. According to oral traditions, the first Quileute were changed from wolves by the Transformer, Kwati; those ancestral beginnings figure significantly in the Quileute world view, even today . . . This exhibition consisting of about 30 objects seeks to provide a public platform for the display and interpretation of art works that represent Quileute wolf mythology specifically, and also the larger sphere of their beliefs about spirituality and transformation."

Exhibit will open "with a performance by a Quileute song and dance group. . . [and] Brotherton said she hopes 'Twilight' fans will visit the exhibit, and that teachers will capitalize on the craze in the classroom."

I almost wish I could take a flight out to visit this exhibit. For some reason, I feel so drawn to the Quileute and their history. Stephenie Meyer (and Twilight's) fault. I had dreams about visiting Forks and La Push after I saw the pics Gil took while there. I think I'm paying a visit to Seattle next year, into Forks and La Push because I won't be able to put my mind at rest until I go there and feel First Beach sand between my toes!! How obsessive LOL

It's the best being a Twilight fan living here. The driftwood beaches, the rain, the damp and cold, the forests, etc. You can really envision everything in the books because you've been there! Even in the Bree book.. I could def see some of the places she was talking about even thought she didn't mention any of it by name, I'm pretty sure I know where she was talking about. I've been on the ferries and could imagine the vamps taking it over. I love living so close to were it all is set in the books. :)
