"N’we Jinan, whose name means "We Live Here" in James Bay (Eastern) Cree, is a non-profit organization founded in 2014 and registered nationally in 2016.
It began as a platform for participating youth to learn about and acquire skills in sound recording, music production, songwriting, and performance. Through the use of a mobile studio, original songs are created that center on themes of cultural identity, language, struggle, love, and self-acceptance. To date, more than 500 First Nations youth have participated across 40 communities, resulting in 80 songs and videos that have been viewed more than 15 million times online."
Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. European words and languages and accounting systems don't belong on Turtle Island.
We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in a more Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as the Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls.
