Indigenous Singers Of Canada
Indigenous Singers of Canada is a collection of rhythm arrangements to songs by popular Indigenous artists in Canada. This resource features 8 Indigenous singers from Metis, Inuk, Dene, and Cree backgrounds, including Tom Jackson, Susan Aglukark, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Shane Yellowbird, and many more. Students will have the opportunity to learn about each artist through their biographies, notes about each song and their significance to the artist, and worksheets exploring each artist's background and why the Indigenous community in Canada is important to them.
As students work through this resource, they will learn to read quarter, eighth, and sixteenth-note rhythm patterns. Each pattern is written to be easy to pick up and closely match the song they are playing with. Featuring a variety of moods, genres, and tempos, students will use shakers, sticks, drums, and tambourines in each song.
