Armand Garnet Ruffo’s work is strongly influenced by his Ojibway heritage. He is the author of three collections of poetry, Opening In The Sky (Theytus Books, 1994), At Geronimo’s Grave (Coteau, 2001), which won the Archibald Lampman Award for Poetry, and the acclaimed Grey Owl: the Mystery of Archie Belaney (Coteau, 1997)). In 2010 his feature film A Windigo Tale won Best Picture at the 35th American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco.
