Celebrating Afro-Indigenous People, Culture, and Achievements
February 1, 2023
Happy Black History Month! Join us as we highlight and celebrate Afro-Indigenous people, culture, and achievements. Know an Afro-Indigenous changemaker? Let us know at email@example.com!
Check out our DWF LIVE with Artist Ambassador, DJ O Show! DJ O Show is Afro-Canadian and First Nations, a proud member of the Squamish Nation, inspirational speaker, and an elected member and spokesperson for the Squamish Nation Council. Her unique cultural background allows her to incorporate the teachings she has learned into everything she does, creating an electrifying energy that makes you never want to leave the dance floor!
Join REDsurgence Podcast host, Riley Yesno, as she speaks with Joy Henderson and Shanese Indoowaaboo Steele, two powerful #AfroIndigenous educators, as they discuss the long relationship between Indigeneity and Blackness.
Meet DWF Artist Ambassador, Julian Taylor! Julien is a Canadian singer-songwriter of West Indian and Mohawk decent. Formerly associated with the band Staggered Crossing, he has continued to record and perform as a solo artist. He is a prolific artist who has released nine studio albums since 2001.
As a Toronto music scene staple and a musical chameleon, Julian Taylor is used to shaking it up; one minute he’s on stage playing with his band spilling out electrified rhythm and blues, and the next he’s featured at a folk festival delivering a captivating solo singer-songwriter set.
