Wolf is a symbol of loyalty, great strength, determination, and strong family ties. Highly respected, the wolf is seen as having a great likeness to people, as they form family units, hunt in groups, and mate for life. They are considered wise, understanding, and steadfast. Some First Nation groups believe that great hunters are reincarnated as wolves.
Born to the Eagle Clan of Haida Gwaii. He is from the legendary family of John Cross and Gordon Cross. He began carving at the age of twenty. He first learned to draw and carve under the guidance of Pat Dickson and Wilford Stevens. Through independent study of the traditional Haida arts and using every opportunity to practice. he became sufficiently developed to carve with late legend Bill Reid. He also, in 1985-86, worked with Reid on the "Loo Taasa" Canoe. He produces silk screens and carves wood, argillite, gold and silver. The design of his silver is particularly robust and energetic.
