As told to Margot Fortunato Galt

In this fascinating self-portrait, George Morrison, who calls himself 'an artist who happens to be an Indian', tells a personal story of a life of changing horizons and artistic achievement. Growing up in a large family, he bartered drawings with town kids and carved trinkets for tourists. Encouraged by his teachers, he attended art school in Minneapolis and went off the Art Students League in New York, where he was swept up in Abstract Expressionism and showed his work in Greenwich Village galleries. Turning the Feather Around, the title taken from a name to George in a healing ceremony, is a work of intimate personal disclosure that captured the pulse of the speaking voice and the vision of the artist's eye.
