The continued survival of Indigenous people attests to the success of our resistive practices; our communities have survived through multiple forms of resistance, many of which generate, demarcate and assert a physical and political spatiality. The strength and power of Indigenous music lies in its capacity to build community, culture and identity as Indigenous musicians communicate across, between and within their communities. Our culture and future endure.
