Albert McLeod is a Status Indian with ancestry from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation and the Metis community of Norway House in northern Manitoba. A lauded multi-media artist, Albert McLeod is a community leader sharing his knowledge of New Media art and Indigenous Cultural Teachings, how to work respectfully with Indigenous Protocols and ceremony within your art or curatorial practice, and how to decolonize the art world.
Albert hails from northern Manitoba, with a blended heritage of Scottish Hudson’s Bay Company immigrant and Woodland Cree. The roots of his work are based in traditional hand work, beading, sewing, and leather work. All knowledge passed down from his Grandmother and Mentor, a highly accomplished Cree textile artist and knowledge keeper.
Today, Albert brings his art training, photography skills, and knowledge of Indigenous art and design, to a new level, while embracing a more modern approach through the use of computer technology and online platforms to manage his career. While Albert’s primary career path has focused on community development in the Indigenous sector, it is his art training that has been instrumental in elevating his work life successfully into the 21st Century.
