Kapay, a member of the Day Star First Nation has accumulated a number of achievements in his relatively short career as a professional artist.
In October, 2002 Kapay was honoured at the First Nations Awards ceremony with the Arts and Entertainment award. Hosted by Women of the Dawn, the ceremony honours the lifetime achievements and contributions of First Nations individuals from Saskatchewan. Kapay was humbled by the award because it is an acknowledgement of his work by his own people.
Kapay was thrilled when he realized that his painting "Visions" would be presented to Prince Charles during a royal visit to the Chili for Children Program in Regina, Saskatchewan, April, 2001.
