Nyēn Nzhän - Sing Your Song: An Indigenous Language & Song Celebration

In celebration of the UNESCO 2019 Year of Indigenous Languages, we invite Yukon First Nations to share your language and stories through music.

Beginner, emerging and established YFN performers (solo or group) will have the opportunity to create or remake a song in their First Nations language. Participants will be paired with a fluent speaker from their First Nation language group, and a singer/songwriter, who will help to refine and prepare the song for public performance. All songs will be performed at a special celebration at the Adäka Cultural Festival on July 4th.

Registration is open until MAY 21, 2019
