Documentary to be released on National Indigenous Peoples Day

On National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21, award-winning Lheidli T'enneh musican Kym Gouchie will release her live concert documentary with the theme of reconciliation.

Because all National Indigenous Peoples Day (NIPD) events have been canceled Gouchie decided to help by offering this alternative.

"I know Indigenous people everywhere will be celebrating Indigenous ancestry, history and culture in their own special way on June 21 and I wanted to contribute to that celebration so going 'virtual' seemed like the best option," Gouchie said. "The film is from a concert that my band Northern Sky and I gave a couple of years at the Prince George Playhouse. Reconciliation was the theme of the concert and it seemed fitting to me that while we can't celebrate reconciliation 'on the ground' for this year's NIPD celebrations, I feel that the timing of releasing this live concert documentary is perfect as people are staying safe at home during this world-wide pandemic."

The video will premiere at 4 p.m. on June 21 on kymgouchie.com.
