~ 16th Anniversary of Isaac Bignell's passing into the Spirit World
/December 17, 1995 - December 17, 2011/
"My art is strongly influenced by the traditions of my people. I was brought up to live off the land from an early age. Hunting and trapping, living in harmony with the earth has taught me to respect the animals and the spirit and power of nature. I hoop dance and sing Pow Wows to maintain my cultural heritage. Through art and dancing I attempt to influence native people to continue their cultural ways; the gift that was given to us by the Great Spirit."
Isaac Bignell (1958-1995)
