Biography Francis Kagige
Francis Kagige was born in 1929 and went to the same school in Wikiwemigong as Daphne Odjig.
He was one of the first generation of Manitoulin artists born before World War II whose career became possible because Norval Morrisseau had broken the taboo against sharing the the stories that were the foundation of the Anishnaabe concept of the universe.
Kakige's hard edged images emulated Morrisseau's and defined him at the time as one of the new Woodland or legend painting artists.
He tried to express the feelings and the impact that he experienced hearing traditional Ojibwa stories but he was best known for the paintings he provided to illustrate Tales of Nokomis by Patronella Johnson.
