Since Norval Morriseau, brought the First Nations wild and colorful renditions of nature to public in the early 1970’s and with the re-discovery of cultural ways and Art of the West Coast First Nations, the Art World has both embraced and shied away from the rapture of this wonderful way of depicting relationships, nature and mans interactions with the mystic nature of the wonders of the earth.
Now in this period of truth and reconciliation we can renew interest and appreciation of the peoples who inhabited these lands from the distant past to today. Their great appreciation and respect for the earth we live on is demonstrated often through vivid art depicting both nature and spirituality. Algonquin Heritage has assembled a vast array of different artists. The collection includes original paintings and prints from leading artists. Primarily the eastern Woodland artists are represented.
