“[…] recap video of the Rez Tour we did in August when we went to six reserves in Ontario to present the show that we perform around the world. The shows were free and all ages, and we also got to meet the local youth during workshops. It was truly special to be able to do this and to show the youth that they are important and that people just like them can succeed. It was important for us to be able to give back to our community that continue to be the inspiration for our music and especially to its youth that is currently facing a terrible suicide epidemic. It was a truly beautiful life changing experience that we will forever be grateful for. So here is the video, shot by our friend Jon Riera […]” – Copied straight from A Tribe Called Red‘s latest Newsletter
It is so great to see musicians working toward real change in communities. These men really stick to their roots. This kind of positive energy gives me a lot of hope for the years to come.

Aura by Carlos Fuentes
A beautiful story translated from its original Spanish text. Themes of religion, magik, clinging to youth and the effects of blind/delirious lust are prominent. I spent a lot of time discussing this with a friend and we couldn’t agree with how the ending actually worked out…
I’d love to hear what you think if you’ve read this book!
Get ready Dawson City, Grrrls are going to shake things up this summer.
Heck yeah! It’s be a success with crowd-funding for the Yukon Girls Rock Camp and that means young girls getting together, making music and feeling empowered. Devon and the Dawson City Music Fest crew hosted concerts, local events and a Kickstarter campaign in efforts to raise money for this great idea.
Girls (aged 8-15) will be out there making music, speaking their mind and feeling totally empowered. The Dawson City Music Festival Association is helping support the camp with instruments and they even get to play on stage at the music festival in July! I know this is going to become something big.
What better way to spend the summer [and winter] than with other cool chicks, creating revolutions and rebel grrls!?! I wish I had something like this growing up.
Help out by donating or sharing this with your friends… it is an amazing, much-needed opportunity for Yukon girls.
Oh, and watch the video on Kickstarter~! So, so, so, wicked!
