“I’m from Kehewin Cree Nation, between St. Paul and Bonnyville. Badger was my grandfather’s first name and when he died, my family took it for our last name. I’m doing art for my family. They laugh and like it at the same time.

I’ve been making art since school time. Sister Bertha taught me to make religious art. She showed me how to part the waters for a picture I made about Moses. I’m Cree and I also do Native art. That’s why I decided to come to the Centre, to do both kinds of art. I keep a sketchbook, draw something first, then put it on canvas if it’s good. I like to play around with animal shapes.”⠀ ⠀

In 2012, The Alberta Foundation for the Arts acquired Dale’s work for their collection. His work has been featured in several group exhibitions in the Nina’s Stollery Gallery and throughout Edmonton.
