Ancestral Inheritance with Edzi’u, Jody Okabe & Evan Ducharme
Familial lineage has its hand in shaping the work that artists and creators give life, whether it’s obvious or not. Ancestral Inheritance explores and showcases the ways in which three Indigenous artists explore their familial influence, through fashion and music.
Composer and musician Edzi’u shares her evolving sound, sonically painting vessels of history, tradition, and adaptation; a record of Indigenous experience through a contemporary Indigenous lens. Musician Jody Okabe explores story, creative process and decolonizing through sound and song. Fashion designer Evan Ducharme shares how his deep and nuanced connection to his Métis family and ancestors have influenced his work in the fashion medium.
