“Stranger calls his sculpture The Buffalo. He is an artist, musician and educator of Cree and Ojibway descent.  The former U of M student describes The Buffalo as reflecting “the nature of what it is to learn.” ‘Ki-ken-sad-o-win,’ meaning knowledge or the accumulation of knowledge, must be acquired with discipline out of respect for the ways of the Elders and teachers, and how teaching and learning occurred in our past as First Nations.”  (University uses art to Indigenize campus (education). Windspeaker 29.2 (May 2011)
