Pat McGuire, born in 1943, was one of five children of a Haida mother and an Ontario-born father of Ojibway and Irish heritage. He is also related to the great carver, Charles Edenshaw. McGuire spent his early years in Skidegate, Queen Charlotte Islands, listening to Haida stories told by his uncle Joe Tulip. From a young age he loved to draw and paint. He also exhibited a natural talent for argillite carving and jewellery-making.
Eagle and Whale were Pat McGuire's principal crests. He used them in silver and gold bracelets and in his designs for ink paintings and argillite carvings. He was responsible for the medallion becoming a popiular item of jewellery. Early on, he exhibited a genuine style different from that of any of his fellow carvers
