On this week’s episode of THAT’S AWSM!, Mohawk actor Kaniehtiio Horn will introduce Owen, an 18 year old Cree, to the world of K-9 crime scene investigations. Together they meet a police officer with the K-9 Unit of Montreal, along with his adorable partner, Gibbs. After learning a bit about how police dogs are trained, they go on a real hunt through the woods, trying to track down Darcy’s stinky socks! The adventure continues as they try to beat the law of gravity…. Indoor skydiving is a completely unique experience – no plane, no parachute, no jumping – just their bodies and a strong cushion of air. This adrenaline-fueled activity will make them feel like flying superheroes!
Fun factOnce did stand-up comedy!
You may recognize him from his roles on Blackstone and Delmer & Marta, or you may have heard that he’s produced a few films and web series himself, but it’s time to get to know DARCY WAITE as host of That’s AWSM! Outgoing, sporty, goofy, warm, and entertaining, Darcy is down to try any and all of our AWSM activities… unfortunately he doesn’t often get to! He can recite every single line from every Will Ferrell movie ever made, and will only drink coffee from Tim Horton’s, but there is nothing he loves more than meeting teens from communities all over Canada and helping them live their best AWSM lives – which makes him the perfect guy for the job!
Owen is an 18 year old Cree youth originally from Wabowden, MB. A huge BMX enthusiast, Owen dreams of becoming a professional BMXer and using that as an opportunity to travel the world, but also has a solid plan B – he is saving up for school to learn to become a millwright! Owen loves napping and eating, but is not impressed with unreliable people. He loves keeping up with his social media accounts, edits his own very cool videos, and collects BMX bikes – he has 3 already! His proudest moment so far is when he got sponsored by his local bike shop.
Fun factShe played water polo in high school
