Roger Wylde is an accomplished artist from the Anishinaabe community of Pikogan. His sense of curiosity and taste for challenge, which he developed in his youth, have led him to step onto the stage and become an Anishinaabee pioneer of professional theatre. Roger has exhibited his work, taught traditional arts and crafts, and been involved in filmmaking. His versatility is nurtured by strong determination to embody, promote and disseminate the values of his culture. This has prompted him to become involved with the community radio station of Pikogan. Through his participation with the Productions du Raccourci theatre company in the production of a short play broadcasted in his mother language on the radio, Wylde supports cultural transmission with modern media tools. In his opinion, self-knowledge is the cornerstone of creation, arts and identity evolving in synergy. Throughout his career, Wylde has paved the way for younger generations and relentlessly questioned conventional thinking to make arts more inclusive and respectful of Aboriginal values. Minwashin, of which he is Vice-Chairman and co-founder, would not be the same organization without his experience and wisdom.
