Morris Bates--A Snapshot of His Life and Legacy

user
Director: Lewis Beck.

Morris Bates is a Canadian Aboriginal artist hailing from the Shuswap Indian Reservation in British Columbia, Canada.  From these humble beginnings, Bates rose to become one of the most successful Elvis impersonators in the entertainment industry, headlining in Las Vegas for all of 10 years.  

Following this phase of his career, Bates returned to Canada and took a job as Aboriginal Liaison with the Vancouver Police Deparment.  One of the programs he ran in this position was "Reality Check" where he would take at-risk Aboriginal youth and give them a tour of the mean streets of Vancouver's downtown east side, showing them where they might end up if they weren't careful with their lives.

 

In all, a remarkable story!
