Reclaiming Traditions as Radical Acts of Love

Show Notes

Leela Gilday, Dene, from the Northwest Territories of Canada creates music that’s as breathtaking as the landscape she’s clearly deeply connected to on her Juno winning album, North Star Calling. Released just in time for a world in desperate need of deep healing, the 10 songs on this album are a great companion to bring with you as you continue on your journey. In light of the 215 children found buried on the Kamloops Residential School grounds, we discuss intergenerational pain and trauma, reclaiming traditions as radical acts of love and so much more.
