What if an Ancestor came so far from the past it became the future again? What would a polar bear say if he could rap? Join Allison Akootchook Warden, as she raps as AKU-MATU, her rap persona inspired by Joan Armatrading and KRS-ONE, and likened to an Indigenous Grace Jones, AKU-MATU’s performances explore themes of decolonization, climate change, the spiritual relationship of people to the animals and the land at the same time offering clues on how humanity will navigate the next 1000 years.
