Sometimes, I feel really uncomfortable going public with my opinions. But I firmly believe that authentic storytelling, coupled with a concerted effort to understand multiple perspectives, can change society for the better. When your privilege allows you a public platform, I believe you are obligated to use it for the greater good.
The letter came on the heels of our performance with incredible local dancer Tristan Ghostkeeper at the Opening Ceremonies. You can watch that here. We also got some local media coverage, which was pretty cool. Like we said in the letter, our band decided to donate some of our earnings to the Unist’ot’en Camp. I have a great deal of respect for the organization, communication, and dedication of this group.
