Short biography
George Littlechild was born August 16, 1958 in Edmonton, Alberta and knew from a young age that he had a special talent as an artist to share with the world. His mother, Rachel Littlechild, was a Plains Cree member of the Erminskin Reserve in Hobbema, and his father, James E. Price, was of Scottish/Micmac extraction from New Brunswick. From the age of five until he was eighteen, George Littlechild lived with his foster mother, Mrs. Winnie Olthius. She was a very caring person and was largely responsible for nurturing his artistic and creative abilities. As a youngster, she sent him to art lessons, encouraged him to pursue his art throughout his school years, and insisted he go to Art College. His post-secondary educational achievements include a diploma in Art and Design from Red Deer College, a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1988) from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, and independent study at the Banff Centre.
