What people are saying
Rex Smallboy’s talents will not soon be forgotten. He made a mark on our school and student body that day that cannot be erased. His positivity, his sincere appreciation for what our school was doing, and his undeniable talents are memories that I will hold dear.
I am so honoured to have met Rex and to have him perform for our school; as well, my student organizers share in this appreciation for his contributions to the success of our assembly.
Thank you, Rex!

Rex is dedicated, cooperative, knowledgeable, and most importantly, demonstrates himself as a professional who is trying to make a difference in students’ lives through arts education. He is a go-getter and is willing to take on risks. Rex is a gifted musician, dedicated father, and in my opinion, an amazing human being who is making a difference in First Nations students lives.

Rex is a powerful speaker and a talented performer who does not shy away from the truth. Using an enormously effective combination of humour, rap performance, and honest discussion, Rex spoke to the truth of both his own experience as well as the larger experiences of Indigenous people in Canada in a way that left us thinking about our own roles and responsibilities in Canadian society.
It was enormously impactful. I would absolutely have him back in a heartbeat to speak with us again, and would highly recommend him as a speaker and musician. I wish him all the best for the future.
