NationTalk proudly presents the Indigenous Healing Our People Everywhere – iHope Benefit Concert 2016. Join leaders in bringing worldwide awareness to suicide prevention through messages of Indigenous resilience, life promotion and reconciliation.
The facts are staggering; the suicide rate for Indigenous peoples is five to seven times higher than it is for other Canadians. iHope will shine a light on life promotion. Let’s contribute to the shared message of hope on November 17th, 2016 at the historic Vogue Theater in Vancouver.
Music can be healing, and music will bring our nations together in celebration. Join us for this musical event! The iHope Benefit Concert 2016 hosted by Carla Robinson will feature international Indigenous performers including Buffy Sainte-Marie, Susan Aglukark and Andrea Menard, with special performances by Coastal Wolfpack and Murray Porter.
This event is produced by NationTalk, with encouragement and input from the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement, the First Nations Health Managers Association, and the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation. Any proceeds after costs will be donated to the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation, Canada’s premiere Indigenous mental health organization.
