Edward is always willing to help his community at the drop of a dime. Edward is a frequent oshkaabewis (fire keeper/ceremonial helper). He shovels elders' driveways and roofs for free!
Edward volunteers to do drumming and ceremonial help all over the community. He most recently performed with Frank Morris at the Red Cliff Fish Company opening ceremony.
