Métis are people of the land. Historically, as our ancestors traveled west past the Rockies there emerged subtle regional distinctions in the culture. Simply put, as the land changed, the people adapted. One exception to this is Métis fiddle music. Music travels unchanging across the land, over the mountains and connects us to the homeland. Our old-time fiddle music, with its crooked bounce, has survived over generations. It carries with it emotions, stories and essence of the culture for our children and future generations. In this way, our fiddlers provide our communities with good medicine.
Kitohcikan is dedicated to Keith Hill, “Uncle Ronnie” Gerard and Raynie Gervais. These three and many other BC Métis musicians have been fiddling for our communities for decades and keeping the rhythm for our future generations. To read about this artist collaboration, see this web page.
