We Are Tradition:

Mob Bounce, spent a week in Tsiigehtchic on their “Scared Space Tour”, they worked with the students at Chief Paul Niditchie School to produce an original song ” We Are Tradition”. The students wrote and produced the song with  the help of Mob Bounce and we are pleased to present their work.

Songs written with Norman Foote:

When Norman Foote visited the school in the winter of 2018, he hosted workshops with many of the grades and helped them write their own songs. He later performed them for the students putting their work to music. Norman recorded these songs so they can be shared and enjoyed by all.
