Winnipeg-based artist Wab Kinew brought both hip-hop and First Nations’ culture together during a free concert Saturday evening at the Couchiching multi-use facility. Touted as a positive role model for youth, Kinew has won multiple awards and also is known for his work as a journalist with CBC. The evening also featured Aboriginal Peoples’ Choice award nominee “Lorenzo” (Leonard Sumner) on acoustic guitar. The concert was organized by Couchiching Treatment and Support Services.
