Art Napoleon

Saulteau First Nation

Art Napoleon is host and co-producer of APTN’s popular show Moosemeat & Marmalade, an international food series where he showcases Indigenous foods, traditional knowledge, and outdoor cooking techniques. This former chief and consultant is as comfortable on a big city stage or boardroom as he is skinning a moose in a hailstorm with a pocketknife. Art holds an MA degree in Indigenous Language Revitalization from the University of Victoria and was also mentored within the framework of an Indigenous worldview. He facilitates cultural awareness workshops, tours regularly as a keynote speaker, and also serves as a juror and board member on many arts, culture, and heritage organizations across Canada including the Isaak-Olam Foundation, The Indigenous Heritage Circle, the University of Alberta’s Tracking Change Initiative and the BC Government Speaker’s Forum. A conservationist and activist, Art does not pull any punches when it comes to presenting on traditional knowledge, Indigenous self-determination, and history but it all balances out with his cheeky humour and honest, disarming approach.
