Drums Across Canada

Returning to Celebration of Nations this year, Drums Across Canada is a live and virtual broadcast event that will unite drum circles from eight different performing arts venues paired with Indigenous drumming groups across the country in traditional call and response to foster healing, send love and drum for the children’s spirits who never made it home, for our ancestors, our matriarchs, MMIWG, the next generation, for healing, and for wisdom. The message will echo unity, peace, respect and friendship in order to forge a new paradigm shift needed to create transformative and sustainable change for the next 7 Generations.

The call and response starts in Niagara and the drum travels back and forth across Canada. The Call and Response will culminate with a sharing of a song by all communities. The program closes after each drum circle shares some reflections on being part of Drums Across Canada.

Join us live at NACC at 1:30 pm (FREE ADMISSION ~ No reservation needed) or online across Turtle Island.

Drums Across Canada is the closing event of the 2022 Celebration of Nations, Niagara’s annual Indigenous arts gathering that celebrates creativity, diversity, and resilience. Drums Across Canada was created by Michele-Elise Burnett (Métis MNO Citizen with Algonquin roots, Bear Clan), Artistic Director of Celebration of Nations.
