Kung Jaadee-Roberta Kennedy

Kung Jaadee, a traditional Haida singer, drummer, and storyteller and one of Canada’s leading aboriginal performers will be in Victoria this week.

Kung Jaadee-Roberta Kennedy will perform at the First Metropolitan United Church, Quadra St. at Balmoral.

Originally from Haida Gwaii, she has given hundreds of performances across Canada in the past two decades.

Kung Jaadee loves dancing, singing, drumming and laughing, and says she is a true Raven – causing mischief wherever she goes in this world.

Her stories stretch from before the beginning of time, to a time when humans learned from animals how to be true haada laas (good people).

She prefers to use her Haida name, Kung Jaadee – Woman in the Moon – the personal crest she wears on her button blanket.

Audience members of all ages can anticipate a fun-filled afternoon, and will even be given the opportunity to participate.

The show is Sunday March 4 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person, $20 per family, $5 for low income/students/children.
