Indigenous Speaker Series: Music from an Indigenous Perspective
Featuring Diyet, with music by the Love Soldiers

Cargill presents the Augustana Indigenous Speaker Series in partnership with the Chester Ronning Centre for the Study of Religion and Public Life and the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre. This is a free digital event.

This is the third event as part of the Augustana Indigenous Speaker Series. Read more about the series here: https://www.ualberta.ca/augustana/services/indigenous/indigenous-speaker-series/index.html

Drawing from Diyet’s personal and learned experience as a contemporary and traditional musician, this presentation focuses on Southern Tutchone music—Diyet’s music of land and community—which is presented in her tradition of storytelling. Diyet guides attendees through a musical encounter of Indigenous identity and understanding. Using a combination of traditional stories and songs, anecdotes from personal experiences and interactive songs and movement, Diyet seeks to build an appreciation of Indigenous music, dispel myths, promote personal resilience and encourage interest in acts of reconciliation.

The event will start with Diyet singing a traditional song and follows with a formal introduction in Southern Tutchone. From there, Diyet tells her story and that of her people through traditional and contemporary stories and song. We will conclude by opening the floor to discussion and questions.

Jan 27, 2022 06:00 PM in Edmonton
