Long awaited open end publishing of Mishmountain originals. This business plan conformed into three levels:
1. 1000 Artist Proofs autographed and numbered and distinction in size.
2. Open end publishing smaller size.
3. Art Card or greeting card format.

To walk around the gallery floors with Mishibinijima explaining each Mishmountain piece represents hospitality and professionalism she expressed to me this morning, I'll be back with my private viewing appointment and must apologize people who were locked out.

GROUP of SEVEN NATIVE ARTIST QUESTION: This question asked multiple times during Mishibinijima Private Art Gallery 2017 art season. During my early years, invitation came to me from a well known art gallery in southern Ontario to open the gallery's permanent native art collection. In attendance were up and coming and pioneer artist of the day. During this festive time I tried communicating and greet older artist congratulating them as well but the older wanted no part of artist dialogue while others were huddled around their private little circles that night and thought: Is this the way established artist act?. That evening and still today I don't care less about these people and didn't want any part of them. I shared my personal experience with a mentor medicine man and told me, Just focus what's in front of you and nothing matters if one of them said "hello" to you.
(This was my only time in my life I tried communicating with the group of seven native art member's.)

SIGNATURE SERIES by MISHIBINIJIMA ART EXHIBITION - 2017: To exhibit this many Signature Series by Mishibinijima is a one time event and very rare the last time being 1988 and this art exhibition a must see exhibit and only possible by appointment, it took me fifteen years to make twenty-four paintings - 705-859-3871

INDIAN RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL ILLUSTRATIONS by MISHIBINIJIMA SECOND RUN PUBLISHING: So many people left out getting a copy of this book and needs a second run, I'm in the process of getting this second run done through prepaid orders, this way I'll know how much I need to get done and send those out soon as possible - Thank you..

INDIAN RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL ILLUSTRATIONS by MISHIBINIJIMA: I feel great pride having my IRS art project home within two weeks and don't have any immediate plans having them on exhibit. Better place for them will be in shipping crates until something comes up for them or place them in the art market who knows, idea of having art exhibit and book opening been DONE.

PROSTATE CANCER: Family physician called the other day wanting me to come in: Your PSA blood test revealed you have prostate cancer and like to know what you're going to do and told her: I'll look into it. This afternoon I searched a tree I need for its inner bark enough to make four gallons of herbal drink that rids prostate cancer in thirty days and do this alone also.

NOTICE: This herbal drink handed down only shared with my inner circle of art collectors, people I know personally and sorry about internet correspondence not answered.

APPLY A GRANT THEY SAID: I never and will and never apply for any type of artist grant in Canada. Everything done nationally and internationally bought and paid for by Mishibinijima. Elder stated: If you have personal visions on this artist path, you pay and pay alone to succeed and be very careful who ventures into your most inner circle, through images you're leaving yourself open to negative energy and never forgot that lesson today, so much of this bad energy passed around and not coming close to it.
