Our Story, Our Future: Music videos give Indigenous students a voice

Two music videos, Hide & Seek and Show Us The Way, centre on young Indigenous people embracing and acknowledging Indigenous heritage and feature 22 Indigenous students, representing 19 Nations from Surrey Schools. Student-written lyrics along with compelling visuals shed light on some of the challenges facing Indigenous youth in an urban setting. Through the arts, students share their powerful messages:

“The closer you look the more that you see, the wisdom of elders come back to me. Once taken from home, but now we are free, we won’t forget where we are meant to be.”

“See who I am, I’ve got something to say; I’ll show you again, don’t want to be afraid; I’ll be learning for the rest of my days; So I’ll stand tall if you teach me the ways; As we look to the future will you see me the same?”
