The Bird Messengers

The independent collective The Bird Messengers is formed of métis spoken word/performance artist, Moe Clark, and Émilie Monnet, an Algonquin performance artist. “As young Indigenous artists, we feel deeply concerned with the destruction of Mother Earth and Indigenous ways of living. We believe that our ancestral ways of prayer, peacemaking and healing are vitally needed today. It is our intention to bridge the wisdom of Indigenous peoples of the Americas, from the past, present and future generations, through storytelling and song. Our vision is to serve as messengers, follow the migration, and support the reconnection and reconciliation of the peoples of Mother Earth. Through ethical transmission, reflection and artistic action, we wish to celebrate traditional knowledge with contemporary performance.”
