    By the age of ten I was doing bead work, native stuff. My two brothers and I perused a hobby – the study of Native American cultures and customs particularly the Sioux. We replicated all kinds of garments and ceremonial items. WE knew some of the dances. We gave presentations to Scout groups, special interest groups and on one accession, United College, now the University of Winnipeg. A USA magazine featured an article on us. I knew of the resident schools when I was in my teens. That issue has been buried in my mind ever since.
    My name was/is Big Mouth.
