Rez Poetry with Leonard Sumner & the CIUT 2014 Spring Membership Drive

Unknown

 

Leonard Sumner joined Indigenous Waves to discuss his work, rez poetry, rez life and love for community. It was also the CIUT 89.5FM bi-annual fundraiser, for the purchase of a new radio transmitter.

Leonard Sumner is an Anishinaabe MC/Singer-Songwriter from the Little Saskatchewan First Nation located in Interlake Region of Manitoba. He provides perspective from a voice often unheard and over-looked in the traditional music communities: truthful, insightful, and providing a new sound straight from ‘the Rez’. His music is best described as a fusion of Hip-Hop, Country and Rhythm & Blues.
