Abstract:

"Transcending the familiar iconography of the Near North--the crows, the wolves, the loons and the ravens--the drawings of James Simon Mishibinijima propel readers into a fantastical spirit world, one that is as powerful and mysterious as it is beautiful. Mishibinijima's drawings are a reflection of the surface landscape of his native Wikwemikong First Nation on a peninsula at the eastern end of Manitoulin Island--the immediate geography of forest and rock, but also the ancestral wisdom of the Elders who have left telling images graven on stone on the north shore of Lake Superior and at the burial sites on LaCloche Island."--
