Northern Tutchone Nation
Richard Shorty was born September 9th, 1959 in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada located north of British Columbia. He is a member of the Northern Tutchone Nation, a group that inhabits the western tip of the Territory. Richard takes the Raven, an important family crest symbol, as his own.
Richard moved to Vancouver in 1981 and became very involved in the Northwest Coast culture which inspired him to begin painting in the Northwest Coast Native style, specifically Kwakwaka’wakw (Kwagiulth). He was greatly influenced by such artist’s work as Roy Henry Vickers and Bill Reid. Richard enjoys painting on canvas and making limited edition serigraphs.
In early 1997, Richard took up the art of carving cedar wood. Finding it a challenge, he enjoys the medium. Since he is a natural artisan, it will not take him long to refine his skills.

“As a contemporary Northwest Coast artist, the de-contextualization of Northwest Coast art is of great interest to me. By some scholars and Northwest Coast traditionalists, Northwest Coast ceremonial art has generally been perceived as de-contextualized when taken away from its ceremonial context. When the words and songs and dances are taken away from Northwest Coast art, it is perceived by some as being robbed of its meaning; hence the title “Con Text.” As a contemporary Coast Salish artist, one of the undertakings of my work is to create a new context for Coast Salish art through the utilization of text.”
