Bear Walker - Norval Morrisseau - 1975

Bear Walker
Norval Morrisseau

"The Ojibways have great respect for the Bear. According to their legends, in the distant past the Bear had a human form and was in fact an ancestor of the Ojibways. Therefore he understands the Indian language and will never attack or fight any Indian if he is addressed properly."

  1. The bear looked at him, and he looked at the bear and they both ran. He ran and ran and the bear ran and ran. He slowed to look over his shoulder to see the bear running in the opposite direction looking over its shoulder....their eyes met again.
