Benjamin's Dream, sung by Don Charbonneau: A song of the life of native artist, Benjamin Che Che


  1. Winston,
    I have had a good read while here. What a wonderful creation this blog is. I am guessing you are having fun putting it together. Thank you for sharing what you are learning!

  2. Thank you Wendy.
    You are right. The Fredericks Artworks blog is not only fun to produce, but a great learning experience as well.

    Imagine...Paul Kane holds the record for Canada's most expensive auctioned painting!
    What you don't learn.

    And...this song about Benjamin Che Che is plaintive.

    So many great stories to be found in Canadian art.
