EARTH SONG | 2019 Nutrien Saskatoon Community Foundation Cultural Gala


The 2019 Saskatoon Community Foundation Cultural Gala continues its
exploration of the four elements to bring you Earth Song, where we delve into
origin stories of the formation of the planet – from Indigenous tales of “Turtle
Island” to non-Indigenous creation myths – through song, dance and poetry.
Our theme reminds us of the power of Mother Earth to feed us all – spiritually
but also literally. Our menu will feature local flavours that ground us and
connect us to the unique issues and opportunities of feeding the world, and our
performances bring those flavours to life.
A unique collaboration between Indigenous hip-hop artist Eekwol and classical
music from Little Opera on the Prairie brings together seemingly divergent art
forms for an unforgettable performance. Juno Award-winning fiddler Karrnnel
joins their collaboration, supported by youth performers from St. Michael
Community School.
Through every detail of the evening, we sow the seeds of Reconciliation and
watch them grow into an immersive and inspiring experience for all. We renew
our relationship to the land, our commitment to care for it, our gratitude for all
it provides.
We invite you to join us.
