Kwakwaka'wakw (Weiwakum)

(1967- )

Descended from chiefs of the Weiwakum First Nation, Troy Roberts has been immersed in his native cultural heritage since he was a small boy when he learned about the dances and myths of his people under the disciplined guidance of the late Elizabeth Kwaksistala. Troy now carries on this tradition with his sons, Tyrone and Nathan.
