The Indigenous voice has a lot of power. That power is amplified when it echoes the sounds of our Indigenous nations. The Indigenous artistry of Inuksuk Mackay (Inuit) and Tiffany Ayalik (Inuit), known as PIQSIQ, exemplify that power with their latest album “Live from Christ Church Cathedral.” You hear Inuit throat singing in a space that the duo says was once forbidden and highlights a lively moment in time when the duo improvised on the spot. Each song narrates a part of the journey to resist the colonization that once demonized Inuit culture and identity.
