Kapawe’no First Nation – In the heart of Kapawe’no Nêhiyawak School, the rhythm of music beats in harmony with the essence of the Nêhiyawak way of life. This unique blend of cultural appreciation and artistic achievement shines through in the recognition of our Muskwak Music Performer of the Week.
At the crossroads of achievement, learning, attendance, and a remarkable attitude, this weekly accolade celebrates a student who embodies the true spirit of music and the Nêhiyawak heritage. It’s not just about playing the notes; it’s about playing a part in the grand symphony of life.

Every week, a young star is born within our school’s musical system. These students are proficient in their musical talents and dedicated learners who understand the importance of regular attendance. Their commitment to music echoes their commitment to the Nêhiyawak way of life – a way of life that intertwines ancestral wisdom with modern melodies.

What sets our Nêhiyawak Muskwak Music Performer of the Week apart is their embodiment of the 7 Sacred Teachings, which are the pillars of our Nêhiyawak way of life.

This recognition celebrates musical excellence and fosters a deep connection between our students and their ancestral heritage. Through the guidance of dedicated teachers like Mr. Fred Mack, our students are becoming skilled musicians and well-rounded individuals who carry the wisdom of the Nêhiyawak with them.
As we honor our Nêhiyawak Muskwak Music Performer of the Week, we celebrate not only their musical achievements but also their embodiment of the Nêhiyawak way of life. These students are the future stewards of us as Nêhiyawak, ensuring that our ancestral rhythms continue to resonate through generations to come.
