Indian Summer Festival 2018

GRATITUDE SONG
A musical tribute to Coast Salish lands



PAUSE PAVILION PARTNER: Vancity


Songs of gratitude exist in almost every culture. Whether an appreciation of a harvest, or a marking of the season’s turn, humans have long venerated the natural world through song.

This special event is a musical tribute to these beautiful, unceded Coast Salish lands. For those of us who are guests and visitors in this place, how do we show our gratitude to its people and their ancestors? How can we reflect on what this land gives us and what we can give back?

Join us as a group of local Coast Salish cultural leaders and grateful guests share songs that ask us to think deeply about where we stand, while showing our gratitude for the unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories.

A stunning new collaborative artwork will be revealed on this occasion. The work is created by noted Musqueam weaver, artist and knowledge-keeper Debra Sparrow and Sandeep Johal, Indian Summer Festival’s artist-in-residence. A reception will follow this event, featuring South Asian and Indigenous culinary treats.

Curated by Kamala Todd, Metis-Cree filmmaker and urban geographer.

Featuring performances by:

- Lil’wat composer and Leo award-winning producer Russell Wallace

- Ethnobotanist, and warrior entrepreneur Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), Tsimshian, Sto:lo, Hawaiian and Swiss singer Senaqwila Wyss

- Gabriel George, Manager of Language and Culture of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation

- Christie Lee Charles, Musqueam rapper, emcee, and Vancouver’s newly announced Poet Laureate

- Founder of the Naad Foundation, and multi award-winning tabla player Amarjeet Singh, with Baljit Singh on Dilruba
