Edward was born April 10, 1956 along with his twin, Robert, to David Jimmy and Josephine Kytwayhat at Loon Lake, SK. Edward was a father, moshum, uncle and friend to many. He was deeply committed to traditional ceremonies; he was a sundancer, ceremonial helper and pipeman in many ceremonies and lodges. Edward hunted and supplied food for ceremonial people. He supplied wood to the lodges in many communities for lodge-keepers. He helped at cultural camps. He attended twin round dances and pow wows. Edward handcrafted ceremonial pipes, hand drums, and rattles. He also made hides. Ceremonial lodge-keepers would seek his skill in these areas.
