Indigenous Artists giving us life

To celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day today, I want to highlight four indigenous artists giving me life. I have been following these four over the past few years, not only because they are awesome at their craft, but because I have the privilege of knowing them IRL — and they are awesome people. So talented in their respective fields, each one draws you in to learn more about Indigenous culture, community, and Canada’s brutal past – and present – with the original custodians of this land. Check them out:

Emma Hassencahl – Visual Artist

Rebecca Thomas – Poet

Classic Roots – DJ / Fancy Dancer

David Robertson – Author
