Tu Dze (Water Heart)
Leela Gilday on location during 360 VR performance.

Juno-award-winning singer/songwriter Leela Gilday travels to her home community of Deline. Here, she writes and performs a song with Deline drummers in celebration of their sacred connection with the Sahtu.

In collaboration with members of the Deline drummers, the song is based on a traditional Dene drum story that celebrates their sacred connection with the Sahtu (Great Bear Lake), and with water everywhere. The video is shot at locations in and around Deline, and feature the faces of Deline elders and youth, as well as the beautiful land and water. Thematically, it explores the role of generations entrusted with the protection of the water and safeguarding it for generations into the future.
