Allen Thompson was born in 1964 in Ebbenflow, Manitoba. Allen is of Saulteaux descent; however, he grew up with the influence of the west coast culture spending a number of years in Vancouver, British Columbia. He began carving in 1987 under the expert guidance of Derek Wilson, Henry Robertson and his brother, Kelvin Thompson.
Allen is trained in carving wood and precious metals such as white and yellow gold as well as sterling silver. His designs reflect a northern influence with tremendous attention to detail and superb craftsmanship.
Allen is very aware of his native culture and hopes that through his artwork he is able to help preserve the Northwest Coast native culture for future generations.

The Hawk takes its place in the supernatural spiritual world, inspiring unique designs for masks, rattles and jewelry. For the Haida Nation, it was used to represent the Thunderbird. Often associated with the Sun, the Hawk can be distinguished by its curled beak which curves to meet the tip of the lower jaw.
When the Raven brought light to the world, some versions of the legend say that it was the Hawk who made the Raven drop the box so it opened, releasing the Sun, Moon and Stars into the Universe.
