Read the wisdom pieces shared by Cree elder John Sinclair which introduce the teachings he received from his forefathers. Colour the beautiful artwork by two Cree artists Delree Dumont and Sam Bighetty.
Sam Bighetty is a Woodland Cree from Pukatawagan First Nation, Manitoba although he now calls Calgary home. He started drawing when he was 14 years old and has been painting since he was 20. He comes from a family of artists and grew up watching other family members drawing and painting before trying it himself. His older brother recognized Sam's talent and was instrumental in helping him learn to paint. He works in oil or acrylic depicting animals warriors and instruments filled with scenery, all in brilliant colours. Every painting contains symbolism to honour women, to recognize a life well lived or a life of hardships and spirituality.
