Linus Woods- Artist Statement

I was born June 3rd, 1967 and raised by my mother, Carol Merrick and father, Ron Woods at Long Plain Reserve in Manitoba. I learned Saulteaux and I am part of the Thunderbird Clan. My uncle, Ross Woods, an artist at Long Plain, lived next door. I used to steal paint off him. One time, I went to my uncle’s house and painted his cowboy boots purple. My uncle chased me home. By grade two I was dancing pow-wow at Long Plain, as a fancy feather dancer. Pow -wows, at that time, were held twice a year — on Remembrance Day and the first weekend in August. Ron bought my regalia from Rodney High Eagle. One year, I took first prize and bought a dirt bike with the prize money.
