George Littlechild
Littlechild_LITT004_Plains_Cree_Chiefs_1995.jpgGeorge Littlechild was born in 1958 in Edmonton. His mother Rachel Littlechild was a Plains Cree member of the Erminskin Reserve in Hobbema, Alberta and his father, James E Price was of Scottish and Micmac extraction from New Brunswick. George Littlechild's interest in his heritage led him to relearn his past and explore many sociopolitical issues related to his people including the Reserve system and Residential schooling. His art is directed to those who do not understand First Nations culture in an attempt to alleviate prejudice and naïveté. Known for creating culturally rich imagery and his use of high-chroma color, George Littlechild is recognized as one of the foremost First Nations artists working in Canada today. He is also the author and illustrator of three children's books including the award-winning publication, This Land is My Land. His work is included in several collections, including the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull, Quebec.
