Greg Henderson, traditionally known as Gweyem is from the Wei Wai Kum First Nation of the Kwakwaka’wakw people.
At a very young age Greg watched and learned from his father Ernie Henderson, and then began carving in red and yellow cedar. Greg is the grandson of the late Sam Henderson and the late May Henderson (granddaughter of the late Chief Billy Assu of Cape Mudge.)
Greg has worked at carving since he was eight and many of his teachings came from his uncles Bill and Mark, both of whom are world renowned first nations artists. Greg assisted Bill in carving the totem poles for the Wei Wai Kum Big House.
Greg enjoys carving and hopes that the legends of his people are interpreted through his masks and paintings.
