Norval Morrisseau's McKenzie Island House

Pictured is the house on McKenzie Island where Norval Morrisseau lived for some time, and where he first met Selwyn Dewdney in 1960. After spending time together travelling by canoe throughout Northwestern Ontario, they coauthored the book, Legends of My People, The Great Ojibway (The Ryerson Press, 1965.) The house has been occupied by the same couple for the past 18 years. Essentially, it hasn't undergone any major renovation since Morrisseau lived there. Courtesy Red Lake Regional Heritage Centre.
