  • Danny Dennis

    Danny Dennis is a “GITXSAN” Native artist of the Frog Clan, born in 1951. Danny is from the Gitxsan Village of Gitanmaax, British Columbia, Canada. Danny’s art reflects the beauty of his homeland, combining his past with his present day experiences.

    Danny’s contribution to the renaissance of Northwest Coast Native art began with international distribution in 1979. His art is currently available for viewing locally at galleries throughout British Columbia and at selected museums and galleries in Germany, the United States and Asia.

    This self-taught artist cites mentors such as master artists Francis Williams and Robert Davidson for providing inspiration from the beginning of his professional artistic career in 1978.

    Danny also carves indigenous materials such as ivory and mastodon. His traditional design work is enjoyed by collectors of finely carved gold and silver jewelry. Unique to Danny’s art are the free-flowing lines capturing the expression of freedom and the infinite possibilities of where a person’s journeys can lead them.

  • Raven
    The most important of all creatures to the Northwest coast Indian peoples was the Raven. He took many forms to many peoples -- the Transformer, the cultural hero, the trickster, the Big Man. Full of magical powers, the Raven could transform himself into anything. He put the sun in the sky, the fish in the sea, the salmon into the rivers. His antics were often motivated by greed, and he loved to tease, to cheat, to woo, and to trick.
