"Art has to come from a history and foundation, and ours is our stories..." Those are the words of Dempsey Bob, a world renowned First Nations Tlingit/Tahltan carver from British Columbia, and an Order of Canada winner. In this episode, he shares his tales of how he began carving and why he is passionate about what he does. We see a number of pieces which are part of his vast collection of carvings, as well as how he shares his gifts with others through teaching his art form.
