Dickie, Rey

Rey Dickie is a member of the Kwakwaka’wakw (Kwakiutl) First Nation, now living on Vancouver Island, Canada’s Pacific Northwest Coast. He was the apprentice to master carver Stan Hunt and Mervyn Child, working together on the monument for residential School children. The monument stands 18 feet tall by four feet in diameter and features a giant raven on top with the seed of life in its beak, and has traditionally carved children’s faces all the way to the bottom. The monument only has two stark colours, black and orange. The black was used to represent all the children who died during this horrific part of Canadian/Indigenous history, and the orange bands that separate the rows of children’s faces are there to honour the Every Child Matters movement.

Rey is now also working together with Chief David Mungo Knox, developing his very own style with lots of talent. He already is known for his clean and deep carving lines always keeping tradition and history of his peoples in mind. We are honored to present his art in our Gallery and are looking forward to more.
