On loan from Amanda McLeod

Daniel James Martin was an Anishnaabe artist from Roseau River First Nation. He expressed his personal connection of spirit to nature through the depiction of wildlife specific to the Northern Plains. He considered each of his works to be a physical manifestation of his cultural faith and knowledge. Martin’s drawings showcased the ancient Anishnaabe knowledge of spiritual animism which places mankind at par with all elements of nature rather than above it.
