Rufus Moonias

Rufus Moonias, a proud member of the Anishinaabe community, draws his creative
inspiration from the rich tapestry of his Indigenous heritage. Born and raised in Neskantaga First Nation, Rufus's artistic journey is deeply intertwined with his cultural roots and personal experiences.

Named after a revered medicine man who was his grandfather's mentor, Rufus embraces his Anishinaabe identity with reverence and gratitude. His ancestral name, Stand-alone Bear, reflects the spiritual connection he shares with his dodem and the natural world that surrounds him.
