Norval was the founder of the Woodland Indian Art Movement in Canada, his works being widely collected for public and private collections in several countries. Morrisseau began painting in 1959, feeling he was chosen to set down the great Ojibway heritage. Appointed as member of Royal Canadian Academy of Art, Grand Shaman of the Ojibwa, and presented with The Order of Canada in 1978, Norval enjoyed many worldwide exhibitions including France in 1969, with both Picasso and Chagall in attendance. He was also invited by the French Government to exhibit at the Musee National D’Art in Paris in 1989, and in 1995 he was awarded an eagle feather, the highest First Nations honor.
