Kyle Peter Morriseau's Seventh Generation Memorial Scholarship

Click on Image or visit http://kmms.ca/

The name for the Seventh Generation Memorial Scholarship is inspired by a conversation between Kyle and his Father, Christian Morrisseau.

Kyle could see the suffering of Indigenous peoples, and desperately wanted to see a change.

His Father shared the teachings and meaning behind the Seventh Generation, and that his generation could be the one to rise up and make a lasting, positive impact for the Nishnawbe people.

Kyle was determined to make a difference in the world. Through the Seventh Generation Memorial Scholarship, he will.

Deadline for applications is: May 1st 2018

Note: Kyle Morriseau (1992-2009) was from Keewaywin First Nation, Ontario, CANADA. He started painting in January 2008, after the passing of his grandfather Norval Morrisseau. He felt proud to help keep the Morrisseau family tradition and stories alive. He had three art shows with his father Christian and one with his grandfather’s works. Kyle Morriseau was a student at Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

From 2001 to 2011, seven Indigenous high school students died in Thunder Bay, and most of them were found in the rivers surrounding Lake Superior. The Agenda welcomes Tanya Talaga, whose book, "Seven Fallen Feathers: Racism, Death and Hard Truths in a Northern City," explores the circumstances that led to their deaths and the tumultuous history of Indigenous people in Thunder Bay.
