      History

      Aaron Nelson-Moody, also known as Tawx'sin Yexwulla (splashing eagle), is a Squamish carver and jeweller working in the Coast Salish tradition. Since beginning his career as an artist in 1998, he has worked with community groups and schools across Canada and in Japan and Scotland. Nelson-Moody's works include the doors to the B.C.-Canada pavilion at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games, several large pieces for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, four house boards for the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre, a housepost at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and a repousse piece for the "Here and Now" exhibit at the Burke Museum in Seattle. He graduated from the Northwest Coast Jewellery Arts program at Vancouver's Native Education College in 2008.

      In addition to his art career, Nelson-Moody has worked for Kahtou Native Newspaper and Adbusters Magazine as a writer and photographer. He is an active storyteller and dancer, and has volunteered for 10 years with the Uts'am Witness Project designed to reconnect city-dwellers with nature. Nelson-Moody has participated in two Tribal Journeys canoe trips using the Squamish Nation's 50-foot canoe, and one trip using Xwlacktun's family canoe, the Pekultun.
