The N'we Jinan tour in Whapmagoostui

whapmagoostui.jpgThe N'we Jinan tour is a hip-hop project for youth happening right now in the Cree communities of James Bay in northern Quebec. It's giving young people the chance to produce their own music and in some cases, affirm themselves in a really important way.

This week, the tour stopped in the most northern Cree community, Whapmagoostui. David Hodges shared this photo of the group vocal recording session on his Facebook page.

Susan Bell was there, and tells us more about the project.
