Goyce Kakegamic was born in Sandy Lake, Ontario in 1948. He began painting as a teenager under the guidance of his Ojibwa brother-in-law, Norval Morrisseau, and Cree artist, Carl Ray, after Morrisseau's successful Toronto shows. Along with his brothers Josh and Henry, he formed the Triple K Co-Op, a silk screening operation in Red Lake. Their intention was to represent themselves (as well as other native artists like Saul Williams and Norval Morrisseau) on their own terms, rather than being dependant upon the needs and expectations of non-native publishers. Triple K was modelled after one of Daphne Odjig's companies - Indian Prints of Canada Ltd. which she set up in 1970.
Rare set of larger birch barks.
