Dear Mrs. Thomas; Many years ago I met Roy Thomas at Eagle Lake where I was attending my first Pow Wow with a friend from Sioux Lookout. A very tall pleasant man spoke to me and admired the T-shirt I wore when I told him how much I liked it and felt inspired by the design he smiled and said "Yes I know I made it". Later that day he asked me to dance the friendship dance in the circle. He made us feel so welcome. When we talked about the strife between native and non-native peoples and asked what we could do he said "You are already doing it" "Youre here and you care". I have never forgotten him or what he said or my first Pow Wow. As time passed I was to see his artwork in galleries near Kingston Mtl and as far west as Banff & Jasper BC. It is a pleasure to say I met him and although the T-shirt no longer fits I still have it. Megwetch Mary Beckstead

Im inquiring about "R" Kakegamic (who would have been about 10 or 12 years old in 1979) While visiting family in Red Lake Ontario in September 79 we were taken to the Triple K Co-op in Red Lake to see some silk screen prints of native art. We did purchase two prints- a Norval Morriseau (Ravens Speaking an Awareness of Middle Path) and a Robert Kakegamic (Grouse on a Tree). The co-op employee also showed us two origainal paintings both done by "R." Kakegamic a young boy who had brought them into the gallery hoping that they would sell. Our two daughters were 3 and 1 years old at the time and we decided that some artwork done by a child would be suitable mementoes of our girls visit to Red Lake. Weve always wondered whether or not "R" has continued his artistic tradition and where his work is displayed. Could anyone help us out with some more information? Thank you.

Hi Louise! Your website and gallery/gift store is wonderful. Id like to know if you plan to start having artist openings. I feel that having artist events for the public to come to would be a great addition for your gallery! :-)

Well first of all I would like to extend my thanks to louise for inspiring my father to get some of his work out there. As time progresses my father appreciates more of his own talents which before he was a little skeptic of what people would think. The gallery and the web site are amazing and it helps all local artists to get noticed and appreciated. To me art is a hidden treasure that every different piece tells a story. Thanks for all the hard work Louise and Donna.

Roy Thomas is a genius. I often talk to his spirit and think about where we are all headed with how we are treating our mother earth. I was privledged to have the master work with me when I was a kid louise and thank you for the blessing of allowing me to blow that eagle bone whistle in the gallery and seeing Roy as that eaglethat day flying over the gallery when all that took place. May the love and affection of our beautiful CREATOR continue to bless all those who have the privelidge of being represented by the beauty of your spirit and the traditional spirit of .....Roy Thomas!

I have just received my second purchase from Ahnisnabae Art Gallery. Once again it arrived in perfect condition and more beautiful than I had imagined. Mrs. Thomas has made my adventure in learning to admire this amazing art a true spiritual journey. Thank you.

I recently purchased a piece of art from the Ahnisnabae Gallery. It was sent to my home quickly and in perfect condition. It is even more beautiful than I had imagined. Mrs. Thomas was a wonderful help in all ways. I am thankful to her for her work in making such amazing pieces of art available to others.

This is such a wonderful site Mrs. Thomas. Thanks once again for all of your help with my purchases. I encourage everyone to use the on-line store. Mrs. Thomas has been so kind and patient with my less than brilliant art questions and I look forward to the honour of one day visiting your gallery in person Mrs. Thomas.

Hi I am from Ottawa and did not know that Roy had passed. I am very saddened by this. I met him on several occasions and set up sales at my office for him and the other artists :Jelineau Fisher Rocky Fiddler Kakegamick etc. whenever they came to town. I own three of his originals all painted in the 70 and 80s. Any idea who in Eastern Ontario can appraise his works? What became of Rocky? I also have several of his and two by Jelineau and some by Kakegamick. Please respond. Thanks.
