Joseph Wilson

Kwakwaka'wakw Nation
 

Hak’wesagame’ is a descendant of the Namgis First Nation and is the grandson of Chief Alvin Edgar Alfred (Udzistalis). Born on January 14, 1966, Joe took to carving naturally and is largely a self-taught carver of traditional Kwakwaka’wakw masks and totem poles. He began carving at the age of 21 after being exposed to the artwork of late master carver, Willie Seaweed, who greatly influenced his style.

Recently, Joe spearheaded a large project entitled The Dolfinarium Harderwijk Project in the Netherlands. This part of the Dolfinarium is now known as de Lagune, which translates to the Lagoon, which primarily consisted of a traditional Kwakwaka’wakw village that encompassed the legend of the Undersea Kingdom.

Joe dedicates himself to his artwork and immerses himself in his heritage with the effort to educate the new generation of carvers. This sets him apart from his peers and places him in a leadership role in his nation.
