"What's wonderful about this evening is that American Indian musicians have banded together to increase the awareness of Futures for Children through the healing art of music. It's all about the kids on the reservation, the challenges they face due to poverty, and how Futures for Children is making a difference and have for more than 43 years,' said Inky Kim, Futures for Children's Vice President of Development.
