Morrisseau Signed COA 'For The Money'

Here's a telling comment that was originally posted to Mr. Matulic's blog by Norval Morrisseau's youngest son, Christian, on 28 November, 2007 (click on image to enlarge). The comment has since been removed by Mr. Matulic. Beginning at line 5, Christian states, "What is the point of having this blog if spirit walker only posts what he wants to share with the rest of us." He goes on to write, "In the spring of 2002 in thunder bay Ontario* A fellow by the name of mr Bill Wallace came to the house with A # of painting and asked my father [Norval Morrisseau] to authenticate some painting for him and his partner — And for a fee My father did.  he sign papers with the paintings picture on the paper stating the painting where his — Just after mr Bill Wallace left my father called me back into the room and said to me that he has never painted or even seen these paintings ever — So I asked him why did you sign then, he replied well for the money!"

To recap, while the Morrisseau signatures and thumbprints on these so-called Certificates of Authenticity** are real — no forensic examiner required — they're not worth the paper they're written on as a means of authentication. Besides, if a person is forced, tricked, or coerced into entering into an agreement, then typically it is not considered to be "legally binding".

*During this 2002 trip to Thunder Bay, Norval Morrisseau was not advised by either Don Robinson or KRG, nor was he in the care of Gabe Vadas. Rather, he acted of his own accord in the care of his relatives.
