APTN INDIGENOUS DAY LIVE IS BACK IN A NEW WAY
JUNE 18, 2022
APTN Indigenous Day Live brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in celebration. This year IDL is moving away from the concert of the past and will be reinvented into a cultural and artistic showcase. It will be an event to honour and express gratitude to our lands and the important relationship Indigenous Peoples have with it.
Artists, musicians, poets, dancers, comedians, and more will collaborate in Celebrating Our Lands. Check out some of the performers you’ll see in the show.See Performers List
