The tour begins on May 31st at Tuckkwiowhum Heritage Village (near Boston Bar) with an outstanding group of survivor and youth artists, including Rez Bluez Master Murray Porter and legendary bass playin’ rocker Helene DuguayGerald Charlie and Black Owl Blues performing his iconic “Survivor Blues,” and the fantastic guitar and lyrical storytelling of The Margit Sky Project. IniInuvialuit rocker and activist Willie Thrasher and Linda Saddleback will give a foot-stomping performance, along Kiva MH’s hip-hop messages of youth and hope, the one and only Geo aka The Voice, and A’aLiya, with her soulful Sto:lo R&B activation.  Be there when the legendary Lytton rockers Richie and The Fendermen meet the Métis dancing whirlwind Madelaine McCallum which is sure to bring the people to their feet!

For the last 3 dates, we are joined by the original pow wow dubstep master, DJ SHUB!!!

Our Movable Feast Spring Tour reflects on the theme of: ‘Bring the Children Home’, which we do in our lives as Indigenous peoples, as the number of unmarked re(un)covered graves across Turtle Island reach into the thousands. When we meet, gather and share our unique yet relatable experiences about the true conditions of our lives, we weave them into a new creation: Ones the ancestors transmitted through millennia to bring us to now.

    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).

2 Rivers Remix Society

2 Rivers Remix Society is the instigator and organiser of The 2 Rivers Remix (2RMX), an annual 3-day Feast of contemporary Indigenous Music and Culture. Since its incorporation in 2018 2RMX was hosted by the Nlaka’pamux Nation in Tl’kemtsin/Lytton, BC, until the devastating fire that incinerated most of our host community in 2021. In 2022, 2 Rivers Remix Society evolved towards a decentralised, Indigenised feast model called the "Movable Feast", that brings a series of contemporary Indigenous music and culture events direct to multiple small indigenous communities across BC.
