Andre Sutherland Begin

Andre Sutherland BeginMy name is Andre and I'm a storyteller, I'm an Indigenous (Moose Cree) member of the storytellers of Canada. The stories I tell are in poem form and my favorite poet is Robert W. Service. I have been reciting these poems now for 22 years sharing them at retirement homes, museums, libraries, theatres, galleries and festivals. I was a 2007 original member of the Around Town Tellers in Nanaimo and began visiting senior homes up and down the Island. I volunteered at the former Travellers Lodge now Eden Gardens that care for Alzheimer's patients for 6 years from 2007-2013. It was there that I saw the magic of storytelling thru poetry and spoken word. Alzheimer's is my charity as my father, aunt & uncle all suffered with it in early 2000, I myself was diagnosed with it in 2017. I use my poetry recitations as a therapy and mental exercise every day. I have performed as "The Man From Eldorado" reciting Robert Service poetry at the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous in Whitehorse since 2017.
