Earth Garden: Aki Gitigaan at Luminato in the Square

As the sun moves lower in the sky, come to the main stage at David Pecaut Square as Elder Duke Redbird shares the gift of his wisdom and original poetry, featuring dancer and Miigwech Collective member Cotee Harper. In a glorious return to the Luminato stage, this time with his band, is Polaris Prize and Juno-winning song carrier Jeremy Dutcher, who will regale the audience with his inimitable blend of musical genres. To finish the evening on a note of joy, DJ Classic Roots will lay down a dance party that will serve as the ultimate connection to Earth Garden: Aki Gitigaan.

As collective humanity, we feel Mother Earth’s heartbeat through the power and beauty of music and art. Let us experience this together as we move through the garden and encounter different elements based on the Seven Grandfather Teachings, including language, culture and Medicine workshops and demonstrations, live traditional music and dance, collective painting, stories and poetry, and an Elders’ circle where all ages are invited to play and relax in a shared space. Together, we will learn, participate, observe, and share in the beautiful Earth Garden: Aki Gitigaan.
