October 19th: Coffee House & Open Mic

7pm – 9pm

Cost: $5

Come and celebrate local Indigenous Artists, Musicians, Poets, and Creatives in our popular annual Coffee House & Open Mic Night. This year special performances by RT Miller, Jim Jacobs and Karonhyawake Jeff Dorreen.

RT Miller is a singer, song-writer and musician from Six Nations.  Electric and acoustic guitars, harmonica, mandolin and vocals are his passions.  Starting his musical journey as early as five years old signing in a school talent show and by the age of 15 he was playing in bands covering everything from country to rock-n-roll, blues and southern rock.  In order to convey a wider array of music he began creating his own style of songwriting and musicianship. As a local band member of “The Healers”, Randy also does acoustic unplugged sessions with unique vocals accompanied with a country, folk, bluegrass flavour of music that will capture your attention with deep lyrics and soulful rhythms.

Jim Jacobs grew up on a farm at the corner of Smoothtown in Six Nations Ontario. Spent 10 years in Nashville TN playing guitar and writing songs. Currently working on an album in Nashville TN that will soon be finished and released. Biggest musical influences include George, Merle, Johnny, Waylon and Willie, Straight, Johnson. And many others of the 70’s outlaw country era and a lot of the 80’s and 90’s country.

Karonhyawake Jeff Doreen and Ozhaawashkozi Anang Kwe Laura Kooji began playing music together several years ago.They will be performing Beatles songs which have been translated into the Mohawk Language. These familiar songs, translated into one of the traditional languages of the Haudenosaunee People will have you singing along even if you aren’t a fluent language speaker!

The last Monday of each month we hold our Survivor Series event from 10am-12pm.

Our Education staff will give our Residential School presentation, providing insight on the history of the Mohawk Institute and residential schools across Canada, as well as a glimpse inside the day to day life of a child at the “Mush Hole.” Afterwards we will be joined by one of our Survivors who will share their stories, and engage with participants in a Q & A.

These Survivor Stories are an important part of understanding the effects of Residential Schools on Indigenous People and they are open to all members of the community.
