That’s because the First Nations musicians have been on the forefront of a social media movement to grow, connect and empower indigenous citizens.

The band’s Ian Campeau talked to me about this, the Washington Redskins, The Flaming Lips and more for Huffington Post Music Canada.

Austra’s Katie Stelmanis

With the annual Toronto-centric-ish, Arts and Crafts-centric-ish Field Trip music festival kicking-off today I spoke with the very Katie Stelmanis from the very excellent Austra about the fest, feminism and finding her own social scene.

Needless to say, she’s got a wealth of connections to rival Broken Social Scene’s.
