Event Notes


Hello. My name is iskwē. I come from the cree, I come from the Métis, and I come from Treaty One territory. But before all of this, I come from the stars (acākosīk). \n\nIn cree culture we are taught that we are the descendants of the star people, the ones who shared with us our knowledge and understanding, gave us fire, stories and teachings of maps of the sky. We are taught that we return to the sky when we are finished walking here on earth, and that when you look up to see a falling star, you're watching the coming and going of the star people, our ancestors. \n\nThrough my next tour, Come from the Stars, I will invite people to share with me the stories of my ancestors.\n\niskwē | ᐃᐢᑫᐧᐤ is, among many other things, a Juno-award winning artist – a creator and communicator of music and of movement, of pictures, poetry and prose. And through it all, she’s a teller of stories that have impacted our past and will inform our future. Her music is a sonic exploration that not only blurs lines between sources and styles, but also between the actual and the ideal, the real and imagined. Her message is most impactful when delivered from the stage, where it’s not uncommon for people to leave in entranced contemplation or even in tears. Her music merges with dance, multimedia, and more in a completely engulfing and cathartic experience – meant to bring people together and celebrate that which unites over that which divides
