Goyce Kakegamic
> Mr. Goyce Kakegamic, one of Canada’s leading, and most honoured, Aboriginal artists, was the brother-in-law of Norval Morrisseau, since 1957, and was directly involved in a partnership with him in an art retail business selling Norval’s paintings and limited edition prints in the 1970s. They were both members of the exclusive art group known as 'Triple K Co-operative'.

Mr. Kakegamic says he saw Norval Morrisseau paint many times, and has signed Authenticity Statements, declaring numerous “1970s style black dry brush titled, signed, and dated” works to be genuine works by Norval Morrisseau.

(Mr. Goyce Kakegamic is a Deputy Grand Chief of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation, earned a BA and received an Honourary Doctorate from Lakehead University.)
