“As a long time collector of works by Norval Morrisseau (since the late 1980’s) I would like to say how much I enjoy the in-depth profile of the artist, Norval Morrisseau featured on Ugo Matulić’s (Spirit Walker) Norval Morrisseau Blog.

Because of his noble pursuit of the artist’s legend, I granted Spirit Walker permission to use the images and quotes from my book, 'My Year with Norval Morrisseau'. This was the first time I agreed to share these words and images - my small contribution to assist Spirit Walker in his quest to venerate Norval, his life and body of work.

Mr. Matulić is also attempting to clarify some of the market confusion with regard to the question of authenticity surrounding some of the artist’s creations.

Mr. Matulić is presenting to all, especially Morrisseau enthusiasts and collectors, a perspective that would be lost if not for his continual devotion and seeking of truths with regard to Norval’s life and work.

I endorse Spirit Walker, his efforts, his determination, his Norval Morrisseau Blog, and hope his good intentions will prevail.”
