Emma Stevens, SHiFT FROM THA 902 & Morgan Toney
An excerpt about the song:
"Vaccine hesitancy is a known issue in rural Nova Scotia, along with many areas across Canada.
This spring, three Indigenous musicians from Eskasoni, Wekoqmaq, and Wagmatcook were given funding from the Nova Scotia government to create a song about hope and healing in the wake of Covid-19 to help promote a message of vaccine confidence among young adults.
Musicians Emma Stevens, SHiFT FROM THA 902 [ Todd Googoo ] and Morgan Toney along with Keith Mullins, wrote and performed Wela'lin which means 'Thank You' in Mi'kmaq.
Inuit Director, Stephanie Joline brought Wela'lin to life showcasing the beauty of community and the passion behind spreading hope and information to protect the people we love, as we work towards a safer future."
