Current News Articles

undefinedThis page includes interviews and showcases of Indigenous artists in news and social media. 

As the following articles are not from an academic perspective, we encourage students who would like to use these resources in their papers and studies to go to the primary source the news article is quoting.

Social Media

Hashtags (#) are one way people use social media to share and stay up to date on current events. Many Indigenous musicians and dancers do not use tags like #indigenousmusic#aboriginalmusic or #indigenousdance, but there are some news articles that come up under those tabs. 

To find examples of dances and presentations at pow wows throughout North America, use the #powwow hashtag. 

The Social Distance Powwow is a movement that began on Facebook because of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Many dancers, singers, and vendors have suffered because of the cancellation of community gatherings, so this space was created to be support and encourage each other.
