PRESENTER

From a very early age, Aaron Bell, Ojibway Storyteller displayed many talents in the arts.  Throughout his young life, Aaron put to paper everything he could which eventually led to Sheridan College for Classical Animation as well as Mohawk College for Graphic Arts Production.
Aaron soon realized that drawing was not what he wished to do with his life.  After leaving college, he gained employment at many First Nations organizations from the Woodland Cultural Centre to Kanata Native Traditional Village in Brantford, Ontario.  This is when his journey began to lead him into other forms of art, from acting to set design and eventually to the gifts of First Nations Storytelling…
