    Eekwol and T-Rhyme

    [nehiyaw/Dene]

    Eekwol and T-Rhyme are seasoned rappers from nehiyaw and Dene territories, currently living in Saskatoon. The For Women By Women Project (FWBW) was born out of an awakening and realization that in our music, we need to create the dialogue and steer the narratives to be our own truths. As a nehiyaw iskwewuk (Indigenous women) we are living the results of the damage that colonization placed on our families. Guided by the intentions of creating a good life and a protected path for our daughters, we are changing the story, one rhyme at a time. With beats by Justin Knight, Shane Keepness and Doc Blaze, FWBW is the beginning of a movement. We’re here to lift consciousness, not asses. We’re here to reflect our matriarchal ancestors, not in a bathroom mirror selfie. We are here to recognize our power.

  • The Spiritual Warriors

    The Spiritual Warriors

    [Lil’wat]

    The Spiritual Warriors are a Father and Daughter team of Leroy and Daisy Joe from the Lil’wat Nation, they fuse the songs, chants and language of the Lil’wat/St’at’imc peoples with contemporary roots, reggae cultural music.

    Their debut CD recording entitled “Ancestors” won Best World Music Album at the 2019 Native American Music Awards. The songs will have you dancing, singing, and celebrating Lil’wat / St’at’imc language and culture.”

    I started picking up melodies from our hand-drum songs and finding the chords for it. I’m a huge Bob Marley fan and I love reggae and ska and world music, and I just kind of turned it into this whole kind of reggae-meets Ð it’s a fusion,” explained Joe of how the music of The Spiritual Warriors came to be. “I’m Lil’wat, I wanted to write songs in my language and this was the way to do it.”

    According to Joe, the traditional chants and beats of Lil’wat music lent themselves to modern music in a pretty peculiar way, but the resulting sound just seemed to click.”

  • Willie Thrasher & Linda Saddleback

    Willie Thrasher & Linda Saddleback

    [Inuvialuit]

    Willie Thrasher is a gifted Inuk singer and songwriter living in Nanaimo, BC with his partner Linda Saddleback. Three of Thrasher’s songs appeared on the 2014 Grammy-nominated compilation, Native North America (Vol. 1), renewing interest in his and other Indigenous artists’ work. Thrasher’s powerful 1981 debut album, Spirit Child, which the 3 songs came from, was then reissued in 2015.

    Thrasher was born in Aklavik, Northwest Territories, in 1948 and at five years of age, Thrasher was taken from his family and sent to a residential school where he was forbidden to practice his Inuvialuit culture. Music was a way for Thrasher to escape the pain and longing. He has recorded both as a solo artist, and as a member of several bands, including The Cordells, and Red Cedar, with Morley Loon.

    Thrasher has advocated for Inuit and First Nations issues for much of his career. Today, Thrasher performs at home and around the world with his partner Linda Saddleback due to the global attention garnered by Native North America (Vol. 1). Wherever he may be, Willie Thrasher is a trailblazing troubadour with an Indigenous heartbeat sound.
