From the Spirit: Archie Beaulieu

“Archie Beaulieu” Episode 3 (2005, 24 minutes)

This Dogrib Dene from Fort Rae in the Northwest Territories is known for his bold and unique style of painting. Archie Beaulieu's art reflects his background of hunting, fishing and trapping and his connection to the land and its spirit.

This 26-part series of half-hour documentaries presents the work and thoughts of a diverse group of Aboriginal artists. Twenty-four of them are Canadian--from British Columbia, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Ontario; the other two are American--a painter from Montana and a glass blower from Seattle. By definition, artists are people who live on the edge, and Aboriginal artists have had a tougher journey than most.
The stories in this series are from artists who would not quit, even in the face of adversity and who have made a difference to both their communities and to the world of contemporary art.
