As part of my homage to Indigenous People’s Day in my Stoking Radiance classes today, I put together a playlist using many different indigenous artists.
I offer my music list in remembrance of the peoples whose lands were taken from them and celebration of how each of these artists is radiating their culture to the world.
May you find connection, appreciation, and joy in this list. I know I did!
