In British Columbia, on Canada’s Northwest Coast, lives a First Nations culture with a rich history. Art has been its survival, bringing a much larger awareness of its people and culture beyond the Canadian coast to share with the world.

Clarence Mills is a world renowned Haida artist creating artwork in the ancient traditions of his people. With guidance from his uncle, Doug Wilson, Clarence began studying traditional Haida art at the age of eighteen. Using argillite, ivory, red and yellow cedar, Clarence developed his craft incorporating Haida family crests, stories, and characters into various carvings; everything from boxes, bowls, doors, totem poles, and plaques, to engraved silver and gold jewelry. His various prints and sculptures are available at prestigious galleries and collections around the world, including a totem pole on display at the President’s Palace in Paris, France.
