Sat­ur­day Sep­tem­ber 30, 2023 marks the Nation­al Day for Truth and Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion across Cana­da and to mark the day, UMFM is pleased to be part of a coun­try-wide broad­cast of a spe­cial pro­gram that will pre­empt our reg­u­lar pro­gram­ming from 6am to 6pm CT. Pro­duced by Orbyt Media in part­ner­ship with The Gord Down­ie and Chanie Wen­jack Fund, A Day To Lis­ten is host­ed by three phe­nom­e­nal artists: recent Polaris Music Prize short­list­ed Oji-Cree singer-song­writer Aysan­abee; Juno award-win­ning mem­ber of Dig­ging Roots and Anishi­naabek­we com­mu­ni­ty orga­niz­er ShoShona Kish; and Juno-win­ning singer-song­writer and the pride of Peguis First Nation, William Prince.

While UMFM par­tic­i­pat­ed in the inau­gur­al edi­tion of A Day To Lis­ten in 2021, the pro­gram has expand­ed to include three 4‑hour seg­ments that include sto­ries and inter­views from Indige­nous com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers, artists & cre­ators, elders and more. This year’s spe­cial guests include Buffy Sainte-Marie, Dr. Amy Car­di­nal Chris­tian­son, Cindy Black­stock, and for­mer NHL play­er Jordin Tootoo.
