with Tanaya Winder, "Girl on Fire"
Tagged as: Celebration
Dream Warriors is a collective of artists who seek to empower others to embody, teach, and live their heartwork. Artists travel to various Indigenous communities throughout Turtle Island to speak, perform, and teach self-empowerment workshops to help others find healthy outlets to address personal, historical, ancestral, and intergenerational traumas through art. Ultimately, their goal is to help communities heal by providing hope, light, and inspiration. On the show you’ll hear music and spoken word by Dream Warriors artists: Frank Waln, Tanaya Winder, Tall Paul, Lyla June, Mic Jordan, Def-I, Wanbli Ceya, and more! Host Tanaya Winder “Girl on Fire” will also share reflections on the communities and reservations artists have visiting since Dream Warriors began in 2015.
