Montreal River with John Halkett
John Halkett is a painter, sculptor, and educator from the La Ronge Indian Band in Northern Saskatchewan. Drawing on the stories of his Cree people, John's art takes form in traditional Aboriginal scenes. Halkett takes us to visit those hunting, fishing, and meeting places that have been sacred to his people for centuries. There, along the Montreal River, John creates a stone carving and a scenic painting, while sharing stories of the rich history of the area.
