Historical Context:
"One of Canada’s foremost First Nation artists, Todd Baker is the grandson of the (late) great leader and speaker Chief Khot-la-cha (Chief Simon Baker) of the Coast Salish tribe of the Squamish Nation located in the beautiful city of Vancouver. With honor and by request, he began drawing for his tribe in his preteens and had ‘The National Living Treasure’ Bill Reid critique his first instrumental crest design, and instead of using his thunderbird design as the new logo for the Squamish tribe, he went straight to a limited edition and hasn’t looked back." -Winn Devon Art Group and Canadian Art Prints. This piece was purchased at the Royal Ontario Museum.
