Benjamin Thomas is a wonderfully talented sculptor. His work honours the traditions of the Haudenosaunee, the People of the Longhouse. Ben's sculptue is about ideas. His messages are political and cultural . They are also about humour and whimsy. Benjamin Thomas creates images that are compelling, very beautiful, and thought -provoking.

Benjamin Thomas has lived his life in the traditions of his people. He has always been most conscious of the dilemna of native people living in two worlds. Ben has said that his ability to "make things", sometimes called"art", has provided an arena for expressing a unique way of looking at the world. Many people are unaware of issues affecting our world. It is important that there is understanding between those two worlds. Benjamin Thomas has a very special gift. His sculpture is a gift, a spiritual communication of spirit.

Ben's work is exhibited in museums, galleries and private collections in Canada, in the USA and in Europe.
