Inuit Throat Singer Nikki Komaksiutiksak

Nikki is an Inuit woman from Chesterfield Inlet, Nunavut and the Executive Director of Tunngasugit, Western Canada’s first Inuit Resource Centre, Nikki is an experienced throat singer and a teacher of Inuit history and culture. Nikki has also been selected by Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada as the 2023 Inuk Woman of the Year. Nikki has participated in a number of international events, and at such prestigious venues as the 2015 Indigenous Music Awards in Winnipeg; always sharing her identity and teaching about her Canadian Inuit Culture. The Inuit of Canada are an integral part of Canadian history and culture, but sadly are often excluded, overlooked, and forgotten. Nikki truly believes that it is critical that Inuit culture is remembered, recognized and celebrated.

We welcome Nikki to our 2023 National Indigenous Peoples Day celebration.

Morgan Grace Music

Morgan is a 16-year-old Métis fiddle player from East Selkirk Manitoba. She has been playing fiddle for 12 years. Morgan’s style is heavily influenced by the many great Manitoba fiddle teachers she has been taught by. Morgan is coming into 2023 after a very fun and successful 2022 that saw her launch her first self-titled CD. In May, she was showcased at the Manitoba Country Music Awards  with some of Manitoba’s best fiddle players and opened for Juno award winning artist Willam Prince among many other great functions. 2023 is starting off the same exciting way, playing at Festival Du Voyageur, Canada’s biggest Métis festival in Batoche, Saskatchewan and also at Dauphin’s Countryfest.

We welcome Morgan to our 2023 National Indigenous Peoples Day celebration.

Welcome to Sleepy the Clown

Sleepy has been clowning around Winnipeg and Manitoba for the better part of twenty years. From Emerson to Churchill, and even on the other side of the world in Dubai. 

He is excited to bring his award winning balloons, his classic clown variety shows and general absurdity to our celebration.

“The kids were laughing so hard I thought they would have stomach aches,” said a satisfied adult.

Glad you’re coming Sleepy!
