PortraitGeorge Ryga In 1967, George Ryga soared to national fame with The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, which has since evolved into a modern classic. A self-proclaimed artist in resistance, Ryga takes the role of a fierce and fearless social commentator in most of his plays, and his work is renowned for its vivid and thrilling theatricality. George Ryga died of stomach cancer in Summerland, BC, in 1987 and will always be remembered and cherished as one of Canada's most prolific and powerful writers. His memory was publicly honoured at the BC Book Prizes ceremony in 1993. His Summerland home has been established as the George Ryga Centre for the Arts. E. David Gregory E. David Gregory is Associate Professor of History and Humanities in the Centre for Global & Social Analysis, Athabasca University. His publications include The Athabasca Ryga (Talonbooks), Athabasca Landing: An Illustrated History, and articles on the history of English and Canadian folksong.
