Glen Rabena was born in 1944 and began carving in the Northwest Coast style in 1970. He moved to Quesnel, British Columbia and studied at the Gitanmaax School at Ksan in 1975-76. In 1978, he completed illustrations for ‘The Birds of Ksan’ by Susan Marsden and the Gitksan Advisory Group. These became the foundation for his birds series of serigraphs. In 1986-87 he worked with Robert Davidson and Reg Davidson at Pepsico’s World Headquarters in Purchase, New York. Rabena was adopted by Hereditary Haida Chief, Claude Davidson in Massett, Haida Gwaii, November 1987.
