Armand Garnet Ruffo

Armand Garnet Ruffo

Who is this black coat and tie?
Christian severity etched in the line she draws from his mouth.
Clearly a noble man who believes in work and mission.
See how he rises from the red velvet chair, rises out of the boat with the two Union Jacks fluttering like birds of prey and makes his way towards our tents. This man looks like he could walk on water and for our benefit probably would, if he could. (From Poem for Duncan Campbell Scott)

Armand Garnet Ruffo is of the Chapleau Fox Lake Cree First Nation (Band Member), & Sagamok Anishnawbek from Biscotasing, Chapleau, Fox Lake, Ontario.
