Nyle Johnston, Whistling Eagle Man, is of the Marten Clan from the Chippewas of Nawash Anishinawbe First Nations.

Nyle was born and raised on a beautiful reserve in Georgian Bay and took a keen interest in painting and art from a young age.  Sources of the artist’s inspiration include  great woodland painters, story-tellers such as his great-grandmother and elder, Verna Johnston, and the traditions of his culture.  Nyle paints the stories of the Anishinawbe people in order to raise awareness of their unique histories as they in turn inform his process. He is an Aboriginal Community Worker.
