Curtis Wilson

Kwakwaka'wakw
 

Curtis Wilson is an emerging Kwakwaka'wakw artist who currently lives in Campbell River with his wife and children. Curtis's work is largley inspired inspired by his cultural heritage, including the work of his grandfather, Sam Henderson Sr. and his uncles and his cousins.

Curtis is extremely passionate about the continuation of his cultural knowledge and for several years now he has been a member of the Laichwiltach Culture Group. His interest in his Kwakwaka'wakw culture is translated through his carving, which he began at the age of 18. Working with his uncles and cousins, Curtis has developed his own unique style that reflects both traditional and contemporary designs. 

His traditional name is 'Mulidzas,' which was given to him at a potlatch in 2001. In 2002, Curtis recieved a Bachelor of Arts in First Nations Studies from Vancouver Island University, formerly known as the Malaspina University-College. 

One of Curtis's main ambitions is to learn as much as he can about his culture and to pass that knowledge along to younger generations.
