Kitimat, Art Galleries & Artists
Sammy Robinson, Chief of the Haisla Indian Band, is one of the most well known Native Carvers in the world. He lives and works in Kitimat, BC, but his carvings have been sold internationally. His stunning wood and metal carvings tell stories of native history and culture. Kitimat, and the surrounding area is rich in native heritage, and you'll often see huge totem poles along streets and in the parks. Sammy is a wonderful tour guide, and after spending time with him, I feel like I have a better understanding of this rich culture.
