~”[Some]one Who Told The Sacred Stories”
Camille very much enjoyed participating in community events and was always available to transfer his knowledge. As an avid storyteller, Camille loved to vividly share stories and capture the hearts of his audience. Whether recounting our aadsookaanan or other stories, Camille understood the importance of his role in helping to foster our Nishnaabe way of being. Always filled with humour, his storytelling brought together our rich history of characters and teachings with those of today. As a first-speaker of Biigtigong Nishnaabemwin, Camille lived within the ‘mini-videos’ that are contained inside of our words.
