about me

GahZahse (Kaska Name), Dennis Shorty was born under a tree at Pelly Lakes near Ross River, Yukon. His earliest memories are of his grandfather and dad making snowshoes and arrowheads while his grandmother and mom sewed moccasins and mittens. Through his family, he absorbed the deep love of his homeland together with the spiritual connections to it that inspire all of his art today.
