“Buffalo Woman came down from the stars in a tear-dropped shaped vessel to teach the people how to live in harmony with nature. She gave corn seeds as a gift to the world before she spun away.”

Gary Olver was born in 1966 in The Pas, Manitoba of Woodlands Cree descent. His family moved to British Columbia in 1975. On a family vacation to visit his uncle, who was stationed at the air force base in Masset, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), he met a number of the Haida artists, watched the artists working on various projects, and he was inspired by the quality of work in progress.
