Roy Henry Vickers is a Grammy Award-nominated, Canadian First Nations artist. Roy is one of Canada’s most revered artists—his work can be found in the Vancouver Airport and galleries around the world. I’ve been a fan of Roy since I was a teenager, so I was excited to have the opportunity to sit down with him at his home on the Skeena River.
In this episode of Anchored, Roy and I discuss culture and history, and the story of how he got to where he is today. We take a deeper look at our connection with nature, reflect on a dark part of Canada’s history, and explore the desire to be our best selves.
