You are invited to participate in a sharing circle with the primary purpose of building trusting and respectful relationships in community.
Consider joining in this circle. All are welcome!
This is a time for spiritual grounding, sharing our life journeys, hopes, dreams and concerns in a safe and inclusive environment. It is a community event and will be held weekly on Tuesdays. The next circle is Tuesday, March 22 at 7 p.m. at Kamloops United Church.
On March 22, we will also offer an opportunity to come early and hear/see (via video) Anishinaabe artist Leonard share his “REZ Poetry: Reflections & Music” followed by a light meal.
Leonard is a young Anishinaabe artist whose creative work emerges directly from conversations with First Nations young people on reservations and in Winnipeg, where he now resides. Leonard Sumner is originally from the Little Saskatchewan First Nation in Manitoba. Featured in numerous Folk Festivals, including Vancouver and Calgary, and in Winnipeg’s Aboriginal Music Week, Leonard provides a fresh perspective from his generation of First Nations.
Vancouver Folk Festival says: He’s heralded as one of the most important and vital new voices on the First Nations roots music scene today, and is making waves beyond… Sumner’s music is a rap-roots fusion with a strong indigenous perspective – a new sound he describes as “straight from the Rez.” His lyrics and message are truthful, insightful, and direct – story-songs that often meld the political and the personal.
This presentation was made at “Epiphany Explorations 2016” at FirstMet United Church, Victoria, BC in January.
