Located in Mohkinstsis on Treaty 7 Territory in Alberta, “Sharing the Gifts” is a grassroots collective of artists. They blend traditional Indigenous knowledge with global science to explore diverse perspectives on health and wellbeing through music. This live music set features Medicine Wheel teachings about the human body with folk rock by Walter White Bear, and anatomy and body systems science told through R&B and Hip Hop by Rebecca Dawn, together with Pow Wow dancers from Wandering Spirit to celebrate the physics of body mechanics.
