iskwē’s new song Little Star serves as both a reminder and a starting point. Here’s how she describes it, herself.
“Set to the drumbeat of an Anishinaabe honour song, Little Star reminds listeners that we still need to act on the lessons learned from the Tina Fontaine and Colten Boushie tragedies. It also gives birth to a new direction for me, as I’ll be digging deeper into the astrology teachings of my Cree ancestors and amplifying the work of thought leaders like Wilfred Buck.

Bridging cross-cultural aesthetics while exploring my own struggle to both fit into and breakaway from modern Western archetypes has always played an important part in my artistic vision.”
