Surrey Schools Youtube channel

As I was working through the readings in Module 1 and looking at the educational goals, I was continually drawn back to a music video that a number of Surrey school students created last year. I thought it was an amazing example of Indigenous youth working together and speaking out through digital technology. In our educational goals, one of Module 1’s focus is looking at how Indigenous knowledge and culture are often dismissed by western mainstream society. I think this music video does an amazing job of capturing the history and culture and how students do not want to be “frozen in the past”. The module also speaks about how technology and media are being used to “convey their link to ancestral knowledge and their ongoing evolution with regard to traditional values”. This video is a genuine example of Indigenous youth and how they are using music and media to give a voice to First Nations people.
