Bruce LaFountain was raised on the Turtle Mountain Reservation. He is of Chippewa, French and Cree and often refers to himself as Metis. Drawing on his Native American heritage, he feels like sculpture is a meditative process that allows him to chip away at his materials until he the excess gone and he can see the simple truth and spirituality of his subject. Wisdom Keepers reflects both LaFountain’s heritage and spirituality with the warrior transforming into an eagle.
