Synopsis

When They Awake is a vibrant celebration of a remarkable generation of emerging Indigenous Canadian musicians, at a moment of cultural renaissance. Boasting intimate access to all the key players, from Tanya Tagaq to A Tribe Called Red, When They Awake is a music revolution right before your eyes. We are inspired by the prescient words of Métis leader Louis Riel, who bestowed this film with its title: 'My people will sleep for 100 years, but when they awake, it will be the artists that give them their spirit back.'
