“Chimeda – We are paddling” is five Algonquin youth from Kitigan Zibi and five non-indigenous youth from the communities of Wakefield and Chelsea, Quebec paddling their shared watershed together, June 26 to July 1, 2015. They will meet with local elders, historians and environmental scientists to learn about their shared history, culture and river environment along the way. On July 1st they will be joined by other locals to paddle together to Victoria Island in Ottawa to celebrate Canada Day and underline the importance of true reconciliation. They will experience cross-cultural relationship building, water environment knowledge building, canoe skills and adventure!
“Chimeda – We are paddling” was inspired by the Journey of Nishiyuu 2013 and local Paddling for our Waters events in June 2013, and July 2014. Strong alliances between the Kitigan Zibi, La Pêche and Chelsea communities have been formed from these events and we now work together on local grassroots projects building cross-cultural alliances on shared goals.
We hope this trip will help build a new generation of intercultural leaders, who can forge new pathways for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians. We envision similar trips - shared watersheds being paddled by indigenous and non-indigenous communities together - for Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017.
Who are we?
“Chimeda – We are paddling” is Kitigan Zibi youth advocate Celine Whiteduck and Scott Duncan, Wakefield community organizer. It is supported by the Canadian Canoe Foundation (CCF), the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Research (CIER) and local canoe, history and environmental experts.

Do work with or cover new talent?

We're working with an exciting new organization called Cardo Camp, which serves to help up-and-coming performers build their musical repertoire with Grammy Award Winning producers, engineers and mastering guru's. We're helping the team at Cardo Camp giveaway an ALL EXPENSE PAID trip to Sonic Ranch (the world's largest residential recording studio) in El Paso, TX this October. Competitors will have the chance to work with the same people who have worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, KISS, Deep Purple, King Crimson, Quiet Riot, Metallica, YES, and the Eagles.

The winner of the competition will receive 3 days and two nights at the legendary Sonic Ranch, meals, flights, housing at the ranch and a full three day intensive, with the Grammy Award winning Cardo Camp team. The winner will also receive a mastered and engineered, radio-ready song from the experience, as well as professionally edited a video outlining the process.

I wanted to see if you could help spread the word about this opportunity for performers in Window of Opportunity - CKCU this month in line with the contest. We would be happy to set up an interview with the team at Cardo Camp, or in certain cases we may be able to provide your outlet with a discount code to provide your readers.
