Guitar in hand, fresh from four days of sleeping on the ground at Victoria Island (Asinabka) in support of ceremonial fasters, Kevin Schofield takes a Cree lullaby and turns it into a song for activists. "It's your place, too," he says of the island. "And your great-grandchildren's. We need to do what our Elders tell us."

Video of Mr. Schofield was captured at public art & activism event, OchsFest, held Dec. 19, 2015 Ottawa, ON
