While one day does not make up for the genocide done among Indigenous People, it is a start on a very VERY long road to reconciliation. September 30th, is Canada’s first official day of Truth and Reconciliation. Moving forward federally, September 30th will be forever known as a day to acknowledge the history, the trauma, and the lengthy road to reconciliation. Truth and Reconciliation is a day to take a moment as a country to reflect and honor the children and survivors of Residential School.
Here at Day Four, we’re acknowledging today in the best way we know how: through music. Below is a playlist of some incredible Indigenous musicians (who unfortunately do not get the recognition they deserve). Stay tuned for the week after next (next week is Pass the Aux!), where we highlight some specific artists and give a rundown on their talents.
Enjoy the playlist and make sure to reflect today.
