Announced: Jeremy Dutcher – Motewolonuwok + single ‘Ancestors Too Young’

Jeremy Dutcher – the classically trained Two-Spirit song carrier, composer, activist and member of Neqotkuk (Tobique First Nation) in Eastern Canada – announces his sophomore record, Motewolonuwok, to be released October 6th, with new single ‘Ancestors Too Young.’ 

The Motewolonuwok album inspiration began with a poem by Cherokee writer Qwo-li Driskill. A singular story of a two-spirit kin who was taken too soon. Jeremy sings in Wolastoqey — his native tongue, considered an endangered language — anchoring his work while he continues to reimagine the song traditions of his people from the banks of the Wolastoq River.

‘Ancestors Too Young’ — the first ever song Jeremy wrote in English — descends into organized chaos, ripping the carefully orchestrated structure into a shapeshifting exploration of unrest, reflecting on the fear of loss that pervades the modern Indigenous experience.
