He has worked with homeless and Aboriginal populations for 10 years, and is an intergenerational survivor of the Residential School System. He is a member of the Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba. Ken is also an award-winning photojournalist.

Participant Feedback:

  • "I really loved the implementation of cultural practice in this workshop. Ken's photos were nothing short of amazing and the stories shared alongside were powerful. I definitely learned a lot I can use in my future with clients and personally."

  • "A highlight for me in the day was learning about the opportunities available for Aboriginals in our community to connect to their culture."

  • "An insight I had was we are all affected by the history."
