May 22, 2016 Yesterday, one of the most recognized and accomplished Nisga'a artists Norman Tait passed away.
For the many avid followers of his work, the Nisga'a Museum held a solo exhibition 'Finding a Voice: The Art of Norman Tait' last year in 2015, which was a tribute to his passion, artistis vision and ancestral heritage.
His devotion to the artform from a very young age extended over the past five decades, and he prided himself on his knowledge of the Nisga'a language and cultural traditions of his community.
We are all deeply sadded to lose such an enormous talent and friend.
