Bert Crowfoot, founder of the Aboriginal Multi-Media Society (AMMSA) and CEO or Canada’s National Aboriginal Newspaper, Windspeaker, is renowned for his work photographing pow wows across Canada. A collection of his works are the newest installation at the Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery in Sutton, ON.

Crowfoot is a pioneer in indigenous media, having established Alberta’s first indigenous radio station which began a transformation of communications for indigenous people in the 1970’s.

Crowfoot, a Blackfoot/Saulteaux/Ojibwe was inducted in 2006 to the Dreamspeaker’s Festival Society’s Walk of Honour, Communications and Multi-media Category. The Walk of Honour was created as a tribute to Aboriginal artists who have blazed trails in the film industry, and to recognize efforts at bringing a new understanding to the varied cultures, traditions, languages and artistic expressions of Aboriginal People in Canada.

The show tours across the province at the Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery from May 24th to June 25th. At a Satellite gallery for the Pan Am Legacy Pow Wow on June 27th at the Markham Civic Centre and at the Aboriginal Plains Pavillion at Historic Fort York during the Pan Am Games.
