Ann Smith is a member of the Wolf Clan and of Tutchone and Tlingit ancestry. Referring to herself as a contemporary weaver based on traditional knowledge, she has gained national and international recognition. Ann has been featured in gallery and museum exhibitions all over the world, and was commissioned to weave a piece for His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
