Klatle- bhi

Kwakwaka'wakw / Coast Salish Nations
 
Klatle-bhi, pronounced Klath Bay, was born in North Vancouver, British Columbia in 1966. His name, given to him by his grandmother, Emily Baker, means "Head Killerwhale of a pod of Killerwhales."

His interest in the art world began at a young age with avid study of his ancestors who were featured in museums and galleries. He spent two years apprenticing with master carver Simon Dick and attributes a large part of his success to this time.

Klatle-bhi spent many hours with Wayne Alfred, Wade Baker, and Rick Harry absorbing their understanding and knowledge of Native culture. His uncle, T. Richard Baker, has shared with Klatle-bhi the knowledge he has gained over many years of working with renowned Haida artists Bill Reid, Robert Davidson and Jim Hart.

Klatle-bhi is committed to the spiritual and cultural expression of his people. He has taken part in cultural events such as mask dancing, singing, Potlaching as well as playing a prominent role in the revival of sea-going canoe journeys. Many of his carvings and graphics express his personal and spiritual journey. To Klatle-bhi, creating with his hands serves as a source of purification and learning.
