UNDER THE SHAMAN'S DOME - Norval Morrisseau - 1980

Norval Morrisseau
78"x 62", acrylic on canvass, 1980
"Norval Morrisseau's courageous and often controversial approach to his work was instrumental in encouraging First Nations people to know their spirituality, history and culture in order to better understand themselves. He taught us to be proud of who we are. He inspired countless other First Nations people to pursue a career in the arts. His legacy will remain with us and continue to inspire all Canadians for many generations to come."

Phil Fontaine
Assembly of First Nations National Chief
