Returning to Celebration of Nations this year, Drums Across Canada is a live and virtual broadcast event that will unite drum circles from eight different performing arts venues paired with Indigenous drumming groups across the country in traditional call and response to foster healing, send love and drum for the children’s spirits who never made it home, for our ancestors, our matriarchs, MMIWG2S, the next generation, for healing, and for wisdom.

Retournant à Célébration des Nations cette année, Drums Across Canada / ‘Tambours à Travers le Canada’ est un événement en direct et virtuel qui réunira des lieux des arts différents avec des groupes de tambours autochtones à travers le pays, dans un appel et une réponse traditionnels. L’intention d’appel est pour favoriser la guérison, envoyer de l’amour aux esprits des enfants qui ne sont jamais retournés chez nous, pour nos ancêtres, nos matriarches, des FFADA, la prochaine génération, et pour la sagesse. Le message fera écho à l’unité, à la paix, au respect et à l’amitié afin de forger un nouveau changement de paradigme nécessaire pour créer un changement transformateur et durable pour les 7 prochaines générations.

This event will be livestreamed on YouTube — stay tuned for the livestream link.
