MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

Latash - Maurice Nahanee is a member of the Squamish Nation and lives in North Vancouver, BC. Latash has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Simon Fraser University and an Associate degree in Arts and Science from Capilano College.

As a lifelong learner and practitioner of Squamish culture, he is proud to share his culture locally and internationally. His cultural teachings came from the example of his parents and community elders.

As a traditional artist Latash enjoys wood sculpture, painting, glass etching, performing traditional music and storytelling.

Latash has travelled overseas to Asia and Europe as a cultural ambassador for the Squamish Nation. He travelled abroad to share traditional songs and dances at cultural festivals. Latash also continues to perform with the Chinook SongCatchers. The core group is made up of his wife and daughters. They have been performing together for 18 years.

Maurice Nahanee's Squamish ancestral name is Latash. Thirty years ago, the Nisga’a Killer Whale tribe in Gitwinksilkw in the Nass Valley adopted him and gave him the honourary name Gilx Buwx. Leiloa Baker gave him the Hawaiian name Kaipo. She is a Hawaiian from Hawaii and is married to Chief Lance Baker. Latash also has Hawaiian ancestry and descends from King Kamehameha’s family.
