Melody McKiver, an Anishinaabe musician from Sioux Lookout, had a homecoming of sorts Thursday evening at Rainy Lake Square. McKiver is an instrumental composer and tries to incorporate a storytelling component into her music without the use of lyrics. McKiver performed her song “Abaawaa"—which translates to "slowly melting”—and tells the story of her mother's experiences at residential school where she was forced to forget how to speak her native language but believes it is not lost.
