NORVAL MORRISSEAU (1931-2007)
"We Are All One in Spirit"


"The Shaman Artist
Wishes to express to us
Through The art form
That we are all
Like children

Our childlike simplicity
With dignity and sweet humility
We view
One environment
and
Remind us of the Pure Spirit
Expressing itself upon ourselves."

Norval Morrisseau, 1983

"He was a dynamic man with a legacy and a body of work that will
endure as long as there are civilized men."

I am sad he passed before I had a chance to meet him. But he lived 100 lives in his one life. May he rest in peace.
I still remember words from him in his 20's that he was bitten by a white rabbit when he was young and that meant he was going to live a long life. He was right.
