One of the most exciting music festivals of recent years took place this weekend, with Indigenous performers from Bella Bella, Kitasoo, Haida Gwaii and other communities.
But don’t worry if you weren’t able to tune in. There’s now a livestream of the entire festival.
“BIG BIG ups to everyone,” one viewer wrote. “Such deep bows to all for the hard work that it took to bring this moment together!”
The first ever Miác̓i: Canned Salmon Music Festival was set up to showcase the amazing musical talent of First Nations living on or near the B.C. coast.
Organizers say it was also “designed to share Indigenous stewardship principles with British Columbians, and to demonstrate the importance of healthy salmon to Coastal First Nations.”
“Performers include Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Carsen Gray, Jason Camp and the Posers, Murray Porter, Candace Curr, Saltwater Hank, Hayley Wallis, Kristi Lane Sinclair, and more,” the website explains.
The Vancouver Sun called it “a spectacular lineup of local Indigenous music acts.”
And we think that you’ll surely agree after checking out the livestream.
