Norval Morrisseau Slideshow

We recently stumbled on a blog from the Kinsman Robinson Gallery saluting and presenting the work of the late Norval Morrisseau, Native artist from the far north who also is known as the Grand Shaman.

We have not carried Norval Morrisseau's work, although we always have admired it.

Now, we are happy to commend to you a site that offers an artistic retrospective.

Here's the address:

At, as lovers of all forms of Native Art, we are happy to collaborate with others who share that love.

There is another blog, dedicated to thart of Norval that you should be aware of: The Norval Morrisseau Blog.

This website has been very active in documenting the legacy of Norval Morrisseau, and a great resource for my own NM blogging.

Some blogs are being used to "push" paintings deemed "questionable" by Morrisseau's estate... Your post about Provenance and buying art is wise.

We invite you to participate and read the new unbiased, non affiliate Norval Morrisseau blog at:

One blog in particular is an insult and a great shame in that it is promoting garbage made to deceive buyers.
As a First Nations Artist I take great offence to the promotion of this fraud as it relates to Morrisseau, Spiritwalker, you should be ashamed.
This kind of trickery hurts the heritage and legacy of Morrisseau.
My understanding is that the Kingsman Gallery is good, I have also been told that Raven is honerable in his presentation.

thank you all

Frankly, I don't know who is right and who is wrong in this contretemps, nor do I have the resources to make a determination. My feeling is that more information is better than less information. If this blog has encouraged others to speak up, I am pleased. That's what blogs should be about.

sad that yet another great artist's reputation and legacy suffers as much after his death, as in his life.
Mr Morrisseau's legacy is particularly important to Canadian's for many reasons.
I like many have no idea what the truth is?
It does appear that Mr Morrisseau did make his wishes known publicly, time will tell if those wishes will be accepted by all, or enforced by the court's.
