Gonzales, Dale Thomas

Dale Thomas Gonzales is a member of the Squamish Nation, born May 31, 1981, in Vancouver. Dale took to carving naturally at age 11, following the example of his father, Gareth Gonzales. He has studied under renowned carvers Al Natrall, Wes Nahanee, Neil and Shawn Baker, and the great Floyd Joseph. Today, he skillfully carves red and yellow cedar plaques, often depicting his family crests: wolf, bear, and eagle.  He helped to carve a 38 foot totem pole in early 1999, which now stands near Highway #99 in Squamish.  Dale is broadening his scope to also carve soapstone.
