We are the Coastal Blood Singers. We are a unique drum group that sing powwow songs and coastal hand drum songs. We have powwow dancers as well as coastal dancers that dance to the hand drum songs. We are basically all one family, we come from Penelakut Island, where the majority of us were born and raised. The ‘Coastal Blood Singers’ are a fairly new drum group that I started almost a year ago last summer. I made a Facebook post, a call out to any singers who wanted to come and send some prayers up on my big drum, to meet me at the ferry landing, and here we are almost a year later. We also have a mascot, a black lab named Thethi-Un. His name means blood in our Hul’q’umi’num’ language.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.

We acknowledge the generous support of our partners and funders:
