Biskakone_powwowBoozhoo! My name is Biskakone Greg Johnson. I am an Enrolled member of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

Welcome to my world of Ojibwe art!

As an instructor of Native Arts it was my mission to share my knowledge without being conde­scending.

It was difficult for me to learn these things as I had to teach myself by exploring the pieces in the museum. I wanted to make the knowledge more accessible for my students. I was one of those ‘starving artists’ once and I learned how to provide for my people using my talents.  I am a Lac du Flambeau native and this is my environment. I care about the community and it’s people. My experience be­gins with my traditional lifestyle. I balance traditional values with modern technical expertise; walking the fine line between the world of my ancestors and the world we live in today. Thanks for looking and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask questions about my art.

Miigwetch.

    Love the website, Greg. I did notice one thing.. the website directory is barely visible on the home page. Any way to make it stand out? Otherwise, you’ve done an impressive job with the website! Thanks for the glimpse into your world..and your art!
