Digging Roots, led by husband and wife duo Raven Kanatakta and ShoShona Kish, brought together their blend of Anishinabe and Haudenosaunee traditions of round dance and interconnectedness blended with the sounds of blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll to the OLG Stage at Ottawa Jazzfest on a warm Tuesday evening. Notably, Kish cofounded record label Ishkode Records with Amanda Rheaume as a way to further foster and amplify Indigenous voices.

Their set was an act of joyful resistance—a musical call to action and engagement.
