Norval Morrisseau aka “Copper Thunderbird” (1931-2007) is often pegged as the “Picasso of the North” . He founded the Woodland School of Art from the Great Lakes region of Ontario and Manitoba, characterized by black outlines and X-ray views of subjects and the use of vivid colour. He was considered the grandfather of contemporary Canadian Indigenous painting or the “Indian Group of Seven”. This monumental work is a a self-portrait and is on offer for sale in #Waddingtons live auction of Canadian Fine Art, November 19.
Chef Kirk at @wanuskewin works with elders at the park to understand traditional ingredients’ usage and then brings it all forward in a respectful, contemporary concept.
Things like the wojapi blueberry sauce on the venison burger and the birch syrup used in salad dressings give diners a taste of these traditional ingredients made modern.
The bison burger (my fav) has house-cured bacon and saskatoon berry BBQ sauce, while the muskeg tea battered Saskatchewan whitefish n’ chips will make you forget beer battered fish is even a thing!
And check out the Norval Morrisseau exhibition while you’re there - he’s the grandfather of Indigenous art in Canada.

Come see the powerful exhibition, Norval Morrisseau, at the AGH!
Hear Tara speak, and watch her work through the installation process with Lela Radisevic, AGH Exhibitions and Publications coordinator.
Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) artist Norval Morrisseau’s (1931–2007) remarkably influential career began in the early 1960s and spanned over four decades. He is best known for his inventive images of Anishinaabe stories, which first fuelled his imagination as a child living on Sand Point Reserve, near Lake Nipigon in northwestern Ontario. Absorbing these stories and other forms of traditional knowledge over the years, Morrisseau developed a unique pictographic style of painting through which he vividly conveyed the Anishinaabe’s deep spiritual ties to their traditional territory and all of creation. These ties are nourished by the traditional Anishinaabe values of respect, relationships, reciprocity, and responsibility, which pervade the works in this exhibition.
The exhibition is drawn entirely from the AGH Permanent Collection and the paintings included were likely created between 1980 and 1985.
Organized by Guest Curator Tara Ng and made possible through the support of an @ontarioartscouncil Culturally Diverse Curatorial Project grant.

Fascinating art of First Nations artist in the beautiful Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa, Canada. “A Separate Reality”, painted between 1979 and 2984, is one of the major paintings of Morriseau’s mature art. It depicts the relationship between the spiritual energies of humans and those of the animals, plants and cosmic bodies with which they share the universe. The cosmos is shown enclosed by a domed shape at the bottom centre of the picture. Its contour describes the way many northeastern First Peoples imagine the shape of the sky world. The domed shape also resembles the structure of lodges built for the shaking tent rituals and Midewiwin ceremonies. These ceremonies help Human beings align themselves with the empowering energies of the Sun, moon and four directions, which are represented by the four figures inside the house.

I have loved Norval Morrisseau ever since my mom brought home a painting done by his son, Christian. As a kid I was first attracted to the bright colours used (very similar to his fathers work), and as I grew up, I often was inspired by his art. When I first came to Ottawa 2.5 years ago I immediately recognized his work in the National Gallery, and gawked that I would live so close to so much of his work. An Aboriginal Canadian, he used his work to bring people together, and illustrate the cultural and political tensions in Canada. •
“I want to make paintings full of colour, laughter, compassion, and love. I want to make paintings that will make people happy, that will change the course of people’s lives. If I can do that, I can paint for a hundred years.” -Norval Morrisseau •
In a time where it seems so often that negative energy overpowers the positive, I choose to be the colour and compassion💫
