Iskwē’s has released a video for her new track “Breaking Down,” which comes off of her forthcoming record, achakosuk.
“‘Breaking Down’ is about me finding my way back to my clan, the butterfly clan, which represents my family in the spirit world. I wanted to show the emergence of self, by shedding layers of the past while discovering strength in being true to who I am,” iskwē explains of the video. “Our vision, director Jessica Lea Fleming and myself, was to be as inclusive as possible, with each of the dancers representing different communities – Indigenous, people of colour, LGBTQ, as a way to honour our various stages of emergence and growth in finding comfort in who we are.”
