Inspired by President Barack Obama’s Of Thee I Sing, author and musician Wab Kinew presents this tribute to historic and modern-day Indigenous heroes. Join Wordfest for this special evening.

A musician and former journalist who is now an elected Member of the Legislative Assembly and head of the Manitoba New Democratic Party, Kinew is a member of the Midewin and an honorary witness for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

The author of the award-winning memoir, The Reason You Walk, Go Show the World is his first picture book. Celebrating the stories of Indigenous people throughout time, Kinew created a powerful rap song whose lyrics are the basis for the text alongside illustrations by Joe Morse.

Wordfest presents Wab Kinew at 7:00pm on September 25, 2018 at the DJD Dance Centre (111 12th Ave. SE).
