First Nation Carvers Stop During Deaths

I learned something about First Nation traditions yesterday. When I was speaking to Cody Mathias, a master First Nation carver, I was told that there were two recent community deaths. During these times, First Nation carvers stop carving as a tradition. I didn't know that.

As a result, this will delay a few of the custom First Nation artwork that was commissioned but our master carvers should be back on track now.

We already have some ready made First Nation carvings at our native gallery.
