A grandson of Tahltan artists, Peter Morin was an independent curator, visual artist and writer working in Victoria B.C. before he became a professor at the Ontario College of Art and Design. He was born on September 8, 1977 in Telegraph Creek, British Columbia. He is from the Crow clan of the Tahltan Nation. Morin was assistant editor for Redwire Native Youth Media Society, working on Redwire and Red Directions magazine. As a visual and performance artist, Morin's work looks deeply into de-colonizing through relationship building and speaking one indigenous language. 4 poets (Mother Tongue Publishing, 2009) featuring work by Daniela Elza, Peter Morin, Al Rempel and Onjana Yawnghwe was the first book in a proposed series to highlight emerging poets. It includes poetry drafts, interviews, author photographs, poetics and short biographies as well as translations of select poems into French, Thai, Bulgarian and Tahltan.
