Festival of All Things Arts

July 31 - August 3, 2020


The Melawmen Collective

Contemporary Indigenous Fusion woven together with elements of hip/trip hop, rock and folk and thick harmonies, carried through with experience, manifestation, and visions of intergenerational stories of pain and healing ~ formed with a vision to create connections between Indigenous People and all others through music, story ~ developing our shared historical consciousness towards what the Secwepemc call ‘The Human Beings’.

Melawmen in Secwepemcstin (Secwepemc language) means  ‘medicine’.
“We thought of a collective as ‘gathering’ ~ medicine ~ to heal, share and expand.”  The collective started as a group of artists facilitating music and art workshops for native and non-native youth around cultural identity, understandings of history, and the role of storytelling in community and society wellbeing.  The Collective then evolved into a performance group, with the creation of expansive original material created with the original group, musical allies and occasionally guest youth artists.
