Squamish and Nisga’a Nation Artist Lady Sinncere releases her powerful music video, “Can’t Kill Me.”
Vancouver/Unceded Coast Salish Territory – In 2019, The City of Vancouver partnered with Creative BC to deliver funds to projects serving underrepresented populations within the City of Vancouver and the traditional unceded homelands of the Musqueam, Squamish or Tsleil-Waututh Nations. One of these projects has just been released and it is already on its way to becoming a cultural anthem.
Amanda Shamentsut Nahanee, aka Lady Sinncere, has spent most of her life as a cultural ambassador. She performed as part of the 2010 Olympic opening ceremonies and, more recently, was a note-taker for the MMIWG Inquiry discussions. This experience played a significant role in creating her new single, “Can’t Kill Me.”
“Indigenous women face dangerous situations that can be changed, but the government is reluctant to listen and reconcile,” Nahanee wrote on Instagram when the music video was released. “Can’t Kill Me” is an anthem about Indigenous resistance, cultural resilience, and survival. The track is dedicated to Murdered and Missing Women and Girls, in Canada and around the world. The song was quickly picked up by local Hip-Hop radioshows including Crimes And Treasons on CITR 101.9 and Unsigned BC on Co-op Radio 100.5. Just a few days ago the song has started to receive spins on CBC Radio 88.1.
In addition to Lady Sinncere, the track features Christee Lee, and Juno-nominated artist, DJ, and producer Hussein A-SLAM Alidina. A-SLAM also produced the song, along with his production team, the Global Party Starters, accompanied by traditional percussion played by Chief Ian Campbell. The video was directed by Nahanee and A-SLAM, and filmed and edited by Ikarus Studios.
