Robertson’s career was influenced by early trips with his mother Rosemarie to visit family in Six Nations of the Grand River – a community known for supporting musical and artistic talent. Robertson’s passion for music was matched by his kindness and humility and his work was an inspiration to many young musicians and community members.
Woodland Cultural Centre plays an important role in the lives of many emerging Indigenous artists through exhibitions, open mic nights, workshops and supporting of acts of cultural reclamation. One of the ways Robertson demonstrated this support was by serving as the honourary chair of the campaign to build a new cultural centre. His greatest legacy will be the opportunities his trailblazing work continues to provide other artists to celebrate and promote Indigenous culture.
