In the native tradition, all animals have their own intelligent spirit. Before a hunt or fishing expedition, the spirit of the animal or fish would be reassured that the flesh about to be taken would not be misused or wasted. Then he was asked to be generous to the hunter and his family.

(1941- )

Norman was born in 1941 in the northern community of Kincolith, British Columbia. He learned from his family protocols, oral histories and ceremonies and had an early interest in the arts. He carved the 16.5-metre (55-foot) totem pole for the entranceway to the Field Museum in Chicago and a totem pole commissioned by the British royal family for Bushy Park in London. He has carved and ceremonially raised five totem poles in Greater Vancouver, including at the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology, Stanley Park, Capilano Mall and the Native Education Centre. He has conducted extensive research into Nisga’a art and is the foremost Nisga’a artist in wood, precious metals and graphics.
