Awesome again... I must say I think he is starting to mellow with age. He is like a good red wine getting better every year. I really appreciate you booking us in and I cannot tell you how much the students get out of the experience.

...it was the giant Kutcha Edwards who had the audience by the throat. I don't think I've seen a more soulful performance in my life.

I visited the First Peoples exhibition at the Museum and absolutely loved it! I saw Kutcha speak in that video presentation. The visit inspired me to continue learning about Indigenous culture.
