Kuto was born in Ecuador, the son of a poor farmer. He grew up working in the fields with his father and brothers, dreaming of one day escaping from the drudgery of rural life. When he was sixteen, Kuto ran away from home, stowing away on a ship bound for America.
He arrived in New York City with nothing but the clothes on his back and $20 in his pocket. He quickly learned that life in the city was far different than anything he had experienced before. The pace was fast,the people were tough and Kuto had to fight for everything he got.
He found work as a day laborer and began to learn English by listening to conversations around him. Over time, Kuto developed a deep hatred for those who had money and power while so many others struggled just to survive. He saw injustice everywhere he looked and it filled him with rage.
As he grew older, Kuto became involved in radical politics and started attending protest rallies and marches. He soon became known as an outspoken advocate for the poor and downtrodden. His fiery speeches inspired others to stand up against oppression and fight for change
