Ovide Joseph Bighetty, a Cree artist whose series of paintings continues its tour across Canada, died in late March.

The tour, featuring his series of paintings called “Kisemanito Pakitinasuwin—The Creator’s Sacrifice,” was organized in 2011 by the Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee of the Christian Reformed Church.

Bighetty, 44, died peacefully on March 20 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. His wife, Linda, and other members of his family were at his side.

Bighetty’s connection to the CRC started in 1994 when he visited the denomination’s Indian Metis Christian Fellowship in Regina, Saskatchewan.
