Secret Path Week and ReconciliACTION Through Arts, Entertainment and Education
FEATURING A LIVE PERFORMANCE BY THE POETS
The Poets are a band that is based in Moose Factory / Moosonee in northern Ontario. They first got their start in 2018 at a local community arts and music festival called The Gathering Of Our People.
Band members include guitarists Clint Hamilton, Rob Carter, bassist Jon Kapashesit, drummer Paul Chakasim and rounding it off is lead singer Vic Linklater.
All the guys reside in Moose Factory and Moosonee. Vic saw an opportunity to start something to support Gord Downie’s cause of reconciliation in the wonderful unity that is the Downie Wenjack Fund, of which The Poets are members of.
The band continue into 2022 and beyond with their passion for building bridges and creating partnerships with Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples and communities across Ontario and Canada in the spirit of Gord Downie and reconciliation.
