Nigamon / Tunai

‘Nigamon’ and ‘tunai’ are words in Anishnabemowin and Inga for ‘song’. The development of this interdisciplinary project becomes a continuum for many exchanges between indigenous communities of Canada and Colombia, and for artistic collaborations between Colombian and Canadian artists, to find innovative ways to communicate and transform.


Waira Nina is an artist and community leader from the Inga nation in Colombia. Emilie Monnet is an Anishnaabe/French interdisciplinary artist who founded ONISHKA ( Productions to present performance-based work, created from unique collaborations between artists of different cultures and disciplines.
