The Devastating Telltale Videos

The worst case of elder abuse in Canadian history… as part of a cold and crass business promotion.

Most of the videos have been carefully edited by their creators down through the years – to hide the fact that Norval was drunk, couldn’t talk from the late 90s on, couldn’t move head, hands, and eyes, and generally was Canada’s most debilitated body of any celebrity in Canadian history from the mid-1990s on.

Raising the intriguing question: how could he have been possibly involved, in any way, in the biggest HOAX in Canadian history, of “thousands of fakes by umpteen forgers,” laid at his doorstep by the Conspiracy Theorist cartel of “greedy white men” who clustered around his wheelchair, and paraded the “body with a pulse” for crass financial self interest whenever it helped promote their sales?

The text that accompanies each of these videos on YouTube is also available under the Menu header Video Text above.

The videos are pictorial evidence that accompanies the 229 page report on:
“The Physical, Mental and Artistic Decline of Norval Morrisseau 1980s – 2007”

detailing how multiple Strokes, Dementia, Alcohol Dementia, and Parkinson’s effectively ended his painting career by the mid-1990s.

From Norval Morrisseau’s “Burrowsseau” period of painting AKA “wheelchair invalid period of painting,” from 1989-2007, there is no video footage showing Norval Morrisseau painting, and certainly none of him painting any of the huge paintings said to be his recent works that were featured in the National Gallery of Canada Retrospective in 2006.

Norval, whose life was totally controlled, by a group of “greedy white men” from 1989 to 2007, who kept Norval the “Hidden Indian,” and the “Dumb Indian,” and produced no video of him talking, or painting, or giving a video interview in all those years.

Show me a “Greedy White Man” Video – CBC Features Gabe Vadas 2003

Only a crass white man could be this greedy; never an Indian like Norval.

I believe the lack of videos was deliberate, to hide from collectors, that Norval was physically, mentally, and artistically incapable of producing first class work of any kind or size anymore. For fear buyers would start to question the hundreds of “Burrowsseaus” – both large and with steady lines – they were selling all during this period.

The videos that exist are guerilla videos, produced by third parties, who had other agendas: namely promoting themselves rather than the artist.

The Kleinburg/Sinclair video of 1997 was produced to promote Sinclair, a 100% white man as some kind of “Indian” associate of Norval’s.

The Thunder Bay/LeBlanc video of 2002 was produced by a collector who wanted video corroboration of Norval signing his originals.

The CBC video of 2003 was shot to celebrate Norval with a one-hour special. The producers found they could not get Norval to utter a single word for the camera. So they got white men to talk for him.

All are terrific historic documents that prove exactly what Norval’s white business managers had been trying to hide for a dozen years or more, that Norval could no longer paint with steady lines, could no longer paint large canvases, and had lost his ability to communicate with anyone.

A still from the most important video shot of Norval over the last ten years of his life, by Ryan Leblanc in Thunder Bay in April 2002. It is the only video document that has not been tampered with, but shows an uncut run of tap which clearly shows that Norval was disengaged from what went on around him and would sign anything that was put in front of him

A still from the most important video shot of Norval (in April 2002) over the last ten years of his life, in Thunder Bay, ON, by Ryan LeBlanc.

It is the only video document that has not been tampered with, but shows an uncut run of tape which clearly shows that Norval was disengaged from what went on around him and that he would sign anything that was put in front of him. (Even though, in this case, they were his genuine BDPs from the 1970s.)

One, two, and three years later, Norval’s signing skills would be put to good use by “greedy white men” who would put all kinds of “Affidavits of Forgery” in front of him. When you’re this old, debilitated, and helpless, there isn’t a person alive who wouldn’t agree to sign anything at all to avoid getting thrown out on the street.

Provided you’re physically capable of signing something legible; if not, hell there is always someone behind the wheelchair, willing to lend a hand…
