Grey Owl, Master of the Lie, 2020
Archibald Stansfeld Belaney (September 18, 1888 – April 13, 1938), commonly known as Grey Owl, was a British-born conservationist, fur trapper, and writer who pretended to be a First Nations. While he achieved fame as a conservationist during his life, after his death the revelation that he was not Indigenous, along with other autobiographical fabrications, negatively affected his reputation.
"Grey Owl convinced even British Royalty he was the most famous "Indian" of Canada and for that very reason I see him as a very important historical figure that not only captivates my imagination but symbolizes what being Canadian really is."
