Henry Green was born in 1956 and raised in Port Simpson, on the coast of British Columbia. Raised within a family and community rich in tradition, Henry’s earliest training was with his father who introduced him to the trading language of Chinook. Green credits Haida artists Freda Diesing and Don Yeomans in particular for stimulating his interest in carving, and George Clutesi for developing his appreciation for storytelling.
Henry Green has completed formal art training at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia (1986 – 87) and at the Institute of San Miguel D’Allende in Mexico (1982 – 83).
As well as an exceptional designer, Henry Green is a highly accomplished engraver and carver. Henry is strongly committed to native education and land claim initiatives. Known for maintaining a traditional northern form along with achieving a great deal of relief carving within the context of jewelry, his work can be found in many private and corporate collections. Henry Green is a master carver and his work is highly sought by local and international collectors.

“This contemporary Coast Salish sun design is an attempt to mediate between the Hul’qumi’num language (the language of the Cowichan Tribes) and English. There have been various anglecized spellings of this Hul’qumi’num toponym (place name), such as “Cowichan,” “Khowutzun,” and the currently accepted “Quwutsun.” This Hul’qumi’num term has been simplified and misinterpreted as meaning “The Warm Land,” when it should be more correctly interpreted as meaning “warmed by the sun,” or “basking in the sun with your back turned to the sun.”
The four eclipsed suns surrounding the central sun symbolize the darkness of ignorance blocking Daylight, a powerful source of truth.”
