âpihtawikosisâniskwêw (Métis/ Norwegian/ French/ British) multidisciplinary artist Moe Clark is a 2Spirit singing Thunderbird. She works across diverse disciplines of vocal improvisation, spoken word poetry, storytelling, and music to create meaning that is rooted in personal legacy, ancestral memory and embodied knowledge. Her approach to arts facilitation is participatory, inclusive, and reciprocal, engaging learners through land-based teachings, tools of empowerment, and Indigenous languages.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

There are many possibilities to be explored in my workshops, depending on the group's capacities, needs, and age. We explore the voice as an instrument for transformation and connection.

Example: "We shared practices centred around building better relationships with our surrounding environments through song-catching, deep listening and vocal improvisation practices. Participants were able to imagine their own vocal relationships with prompts to activate qualities of voice and movement from the natural world, including creatures, elements & landscapes. They were also enthusiastic to participate in call and response practices and circle singing, which were all invitations to consider the natural world around and within us as catalysts for musical discoveries." Other explorations: breath-work connected to medicine wheel (4-directions); collective songwriting incorporating poetic prompts, Indigenous / mother tongue languages, and earth-based understandings; partner work; talking circle.

One-Day Event Description

askiy nikamotan / singing the land

Small ensemble music + storytelling concert featuring 2-3 musicians. Highlighting Indigenous creation stories, being in right relation to the land, honouring our Indigenous song + drum practices, and reclaiming ancestral languages. Students will be invited to join in call-and-response sing-a-longs, including aspects of nêhiyawêwin (Plains Cree language). Honouring our diverse cultural traditions, musicians also demonstrate how traditional land-based practices can be brought into contemporary settings and act as tools for creative collaboration, land stewardship, and community building.

I can work with any number of students at a time.
