When given this name he was blessed by the Elder to continue sharing his message with as many people as possible. The Elder felt that Indigenous and non-Indigenous could benefit from his experiences.
At the tender age of 3, David Languedoc was labeled "incorrigible” by the very professionals who were supposed to protect him and look after his well-being. To a little boy, of course, the word itself was meaningless. But he would bear the weight of its implications for a lifetime.
