Album Recording

Songs, Storytelling and Drumming has been such a wonderful thing to share with community and schools over the last several years. Now I am hoping to share with even more people across Turtle Island through the Songs, Stories and Teachings we have all shared together. I am looking for little and big voices to help share along this journey.
Everyone is Welcome! Indigenous, First Nations, Métis and Inuit voices are encouraged to join us. Allies and Friends who would like to share thier voices and honour our connection as a full community are invited as well. Please wear your Regalia or Cultural Outfits from whatever Nation or Background you are from to honour our Ancestors and Welcome them in. 
We will be recording Songs and Storytelling May 20th & 21st at Arts Commons in the Jack Singer Rehearsal Hall.
