The 2021 Benjamin Eby Lecture will be presented by Associate Professor of Music Karen Sunabacka.
Karen Sunabacka always knew she was Métis. Her Grandparent’s farm, near Selkirk, Manitoba, was a gathering place for the local English Métis community and Karen with her siblings spent countless hours dancing, fiddling, and exploring the rural prairie landscape. Yet her heritage is both Settler and Indigenous and her family sits at the intersection of two very different world views. Karen has started exploring this intersection by telling family stories in her musical compositions.
