Mr. George Zantua

George Zantua is of a Native American heritage, and is an enrolled member of the Tlingit and Haida Tribes of Alaska. He is a retired social worker currently working as the art room supervisor for the Nativity House (a program for the homeless operated through Catholic Community Services). The early years of his life were spent with his grandmother and his great-grandfather to learn their interpretations of the older spiritual traditions. His grandparents were shamans and healers. Understanding life and having the vision to see the most respectful and honorable path in ones life was part of their medicine. His artwork is an attempt to explain their vision using the symbology they taught him.
