Kaska, Tlingit

Wolf Clan

(1970- )

Dean Heron, born in 1970, is Kaska/Tlingit and member of the Wolf Clan from Liard, Yukon. His parents encouraged him to search out his heritage from a young age. In the early 1990’s Dean started to pursue a lifelong commitment to learning First Nation’s art with the encouragement and support of his wife. He began designing and painting at first, but wanted to learn to carve. In 2006, this took him back to the north - to Terrace, B.C. where he began formal training in drawing, design, tool-making and carving under prominent Northwest Coast artists Stan Bevan, Ken McNeil, and Dempsey Bob at the Freda Deising School of Northwest Coast Art. In the spring of 2007 Dean was recognized by the Northwest Community College with the Dr. Freda Diesing Award. He graduated from the First Nations Fine Arts program with Honour’s in 2008.
