There is a story that has been blowing in the winds of our history. Many generations ago, an elder from the mountains shared a prophetic tale about a group of leaders united through music, prayer and love. Fully armoured, ready for battle, prepared for the risk; the story of the silent war is ready to be told by hundreds of young Indigenous voices, in hopes to shed light on the darkest truths of our beautiful country.
Once upon a dream there was a child who had a clear vision of the future but the path was too dark to walk. This child stayed locked away, thinking of an escape into a different world. It was a self-promise; that the future will be brighter than the present. The unexpected day finally came.
A luminous path appeared that many had walked before. Through the unknown fear, the child joined the movement of loud voices, deep rhythmic thunder & elusive shine. The dreamkeepers are here today and they are awake. Please remember that there is great spirit in your child.
