Onaman Legend – Norval Morrisseau – 1978

Onaman Legend
Norval Morrisseau
1978

“I am Norval Morrisseau and my Indian name is Copper Thunderbird. I am a born artist. A few people are born artists and most others are not, and it is the same with the Indians. I have grown up with many stories and legends of my people, the great Ojibway Indians, and I have made paintings of these legends, although very few people have yet seen them. I believe each painting would be worth exhibiting in a gallery.”
