Through storytelling and songs, Ta'Kaiya will touch on the struggles of Indigenous communities to combat perpetuating destructive cycles of substance abuse, parental disconnect and suicide that are all consequences of colonization. At the young age of 14, her voice will inspire and move you to care for Mother Earth.
Over the past 4 years, Ta'Kaiya has been an international environmental and indigenous rights advocate for providing better qualities of living in Indigenous First Nations territories, and ending the oppression, racism, and corruption indigenous people face from government and within their communities. As a singer she transmits a simple message of her story and her truth through the very relatable and human medium of music. She has spoken at UN meeting across the globe, including The TUNZA UN children and youth conference on the environment in Bandung Indonesia and the Rio+20 UN conference on the environment in Rio de Janeiro.
