Cayuga Nation (Iroquois)
Six Nations of the Grand River
Leroy Henry comes from the most talented family of artists in Iroquois art.
Son of the decorated carvers Ben Henry and Loreene Henry, he has been carving for as long as he can remember. He is a traditionalist, which means that he is not a member of the band, observes the old teachings and does not accept government funding. His works are displayed throughout North America and are sold to collectors all around the world.
He carves soapstone on a large scale and his favourite subject matter is the “The eagle”.
