Legacy Schools are committed to moving reconciliation forward in meaningful ways through awareness, education, and connection. It is in this spirit of connection that we want you to sing.
Send us your video recording of “I will not be struck” from Secret Path for a chance to be featured in our Legacy Schools video with other Legacy Schools and musicians from throughout Canada. Sing in your local Indigenous language, play a variety of instruments, dress in clothing that represents you, your school, and your community.
As some students may be learning remotely, we’re encouraging people to take up the challenge from their homes with their family.
Send us your video singing “I will not be struck” by June 30, 2021. Over the summer we’re going to edit it together with some familiar musicians and other Legacy Schools. This video montage will premiere during Secret Path Week October 17-22, 2021.
Inspired by Chanie’s story and Gord’s call to build a better Canada, the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund aims to build cultural understanding and create a path toward reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Our goal is to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education, and connections between all Canadians.
