  • My grandmother, Ellen Neel, is credited with being the first woman totem pole carver. Historically, the carving of totems and ceremonial regalia was done exclusively by men. Ellen was the first to break down that barrier and helped open the door for talented Native women artists to follow.

    She is also acknowledged as being the first Northwest coast Native artist to use silk screen print making in her art, which went on to become a major artistic media for many Aboriginal artists.
