Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed powerful Indigenous activism and leadership within our music community, as well as the emergence of new and innovative ways of collaborating, connecting and standing in solidarity with one another – even while apart. This panel discussion will explore ways in which our music community can continue to work together to uplift Indigenous voices, carrying the gifts of our ancestors to help us map new paths forward for the global community.
