The influence of Norval Morrisseau on our art

The influence of Norval Morrisseau on the art of Zhaawano Giizhik and Simone McLeod

“I wanted to be a Shaman and an artist. I wanted to give the world these images because I felt this could bring back the pride of the Ojibwa, which was once great....My aim is to reassemble the pieces of a once-proud culture, and to show the dignity and bravery of my people.”  

- Norval Morrisseau/Miskwaabik Animikii (Copper Thunderbird) (1931-2007)
