Ghostkeeper is the first major look back at the extraordinary art practice of Ahasiw Maskegon-Iskwew (1958-2006). Ahasiw was among the first aboriginal artists in Canada to work in performance, and the internet. Ahasiw Maskegon-Iskwew's work as a curator, producer, and writer laid important groundwork for Aboriginal artists in these fields. He is an important voice in the development of these media within the aboriginal communities and beyond.
