Norman PeterPaul was a gifted Mi’kmaq artist who loved to work with wood. He sadly passed away in 2014. Norman resided in Big Cove, Elsipogtog (which translates in Mi’kmaq to “River of Fire” due to its colorful sunsets), New Brunswick. He carved small and large totem poles, peace pipes, manufactured wooden hunting bows, and many other wooden art items. Three of his largest totem poles, peace pipes, and 2 hunting bows can be seen at the Friends United International Convention Centre as they are being exhibited in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He usually carved with pine wood from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
