June 21st marks National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada, a time to “recognize and celebrate the history, heritage, resilience, and diversity of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities across Canada” (Government of Canada). In honour of this day, we are thrilled to share a curated list of our favourite Indigenous musicians. We encourage you to listen to their music and participate in local June 21st festivities throughout British Columbia. By attending these events, we honour the profound contributions of Indigenous peoples to our national tapestry and foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of their enduring legacy.

Interested in learning more? We highly recommend watching the movie “RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World“, which tells the story of Indigenous influence on the history of American music.
