Isaac Tait was from the Raven and Frog clans. He worked in many different art forms such as jewellery, printmaking, carving, and textiles. Isaac started carving in the early 1980s. In 1986, along with his father, Norman, and his uncle, Robert, Isaac carved a totem pole for the Native Education College in Vancouver, BC. One year later, he helped to carve a pole to be placed in Vancouver's Stanley Park. In 1985, Isaac was chosen to greet the Maori people at the Field Museum in Chicago, IL, and to perform at the exhibition. In 1994, he designed and painted a corporate logo for Toronto's Generation 2000. Isaac passed away in 2000.
