Event Details

In 2019, a small group of Métis and First Nations women met and began a weekly inclusive singing and hand drumming circle. Instructor Wenonah Justin member of Cook’s Ferry of the Nlaka’pamux nation with Cree ancestry is a traditional singer, Knowledge Sharer and Drum Carrier. She shares the traditional Salish teachings she learned from Salish Elders in Tiqilip Community Singers.

In the pursuit of helping themselves and others reclaim a culture that was denied to them, D.R.U.M.C. practices Love, Unity, Inclusivity, Acceptance, Indigenous languages, Stories, and Songs.

We will be gathering on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Stó:lō People. Specifically Semá:th (Sumas), Mathexwi (Matsqui), and Laq’ámel (Mission) First Nations. This is also the lodging home for the Fraser Valley Métis Association, a chartered community of Metis Nation BC (MNBC).
