I am C. Wade Greene, traditional name TEW*HEW*HA*AHTSEE. I am from the village of wa’atch, one of the 5 villages of makah. My father’s father’s father come from here. I come from a line of singers and speakers and MC’s. My mother’s family comes from ba’adah another one of makahs 5 villages. I began as a Carver. Masks, paddles rattles and ceremonial headdress masks. In 2002 i began 2 dimensional work and began a company NATIVES WEAR, silk screened clothing with native designs. At the same time i started working with silver gold and copper. I have made vests, dance shawls and traditional dance gear. Made huge murals and carved totem poles as well as tiny masks and mini pieces. Even as an instructor i have never stopped being a student. Learning never ceases.
