Jason Chamakese

Based In: Pelican Lake First Nation

Jason Chamakese currently resides on the Pelican Lake First Nation in Saskatchewan, Canada. He is fluent in his Plains Cree language and strongly rooted in his traditional beliefs. As a small child, he recalls his mother singing traditional songs as she went about her day to day activities. These memories and his firm cultural background and respect for traditional story and song played an integral role in his discovery of the Native American flute over a decade ago.
