Ken Hans

Ken Hans

Haida


Ken Hans was born in Haida Gwaii, and belongs to the Eagle Clan. He was introduced to native art from his uncle Thomas Hans, an argillite carver.

In 1992, Ken was commissioned by Queen Charlotte City Secondary School to design and paint four drums for the Haida Language program. In 2002, he was part of the Haida Repatriation Group making steam bentwood yellow cedar boxes for the repatriation of his Haida ancestor’s remains from a museum in New York.

“I am representing Skidegate and gaining further knowledge from our teachers so I can help pass on the traditional carving to the next generation.”
