The festival is organized in recognition and celebration of the sovereignty of Indigenous Nations throughout BC. While 2017 marks the Canada’s 150th year, it also marks more than 500 years of Indigenous resistance to colonial exploitation and assimilation in this region. Our intention is to highlight the perspectives of Indigenous musicians, artists, activists and knowledge keepers. We are partnered with Quw’utsun elders and traditional leaders to ensure that this gathering follows proper protocols and is accessible to the local Indigenous community. All Quw’utsun people are invited free of charge to reflect the fact that the Cowichan Valley is unceded Quw’utsun Territory.
