Whitehorse, Yukon

Traditional/Contemporary Folk

Tahltan Sacred Headwaters is comprised of Elaine Jakesta, her daughters Chelsea, Cassia, and Camille Jakesta and her niece Shalane Pauls.  Her daughters are not able to join her this year, so Elaine will be playing with her sister Lisa Pauls.  Elaine has been singing since she was three years old and performing for over twelve years. Drawing inspiration from her parents Mille and Jack Pauls, Elaine writes songs that explore First Nations history, language, and successes.
