In Their Own Words - Artist Peter Migwans
Peter Migwans is a painter in the woodland style. He began drawing when he was a miner in Wawa where he would draw images on the dusty windows and have his workmates guess what the image was. In addition to a lifetime of painting Peter has long served as an elder to the Anishinaabe community in Sault Ste. Marie.
