MY WORK WITH MORRISSEAU RITCHIE SINCLAIR (Stardreamer) / January 2nd 1957, Thunder Bay, Scottish Lineage. Apprenticed with Norval Morrisseau, 1979-1985, [...]
Grand shamans have a profound responsibility. Traditionally, once every seven generations a Grand shaman will incarnate to refresh the ancestral record of humanity’s multi-generational sojourn.
When I first apprenticed with Norval Morrisseau in 1979, his art was known as “Indian Art” and First Nations people were still being called “Indians.” Today, we use terms such as “medicine art” or “legend painting” to describe his work.
We are here for our first taste of what I knew would be a mescaline trip of a documentary. Outside it was wet, windy, and wildly chaotic. Perfect conditions for yet another Morrisseau masterpiece to take centre stage.
