Folk, Blues, R&B ,Oneida Wolf Clan, Six Nations based Singer/Songwriter
A soulful musician, singer, and songwriter, Lacey Hill composes her music in Southern Ontario on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve. She grew up “down the bush” (slang for ‘on the reserve’) where her passion for singing emerged when she was just a toddler. For over a decade Lacey has honed her talents singing back up vocals and cover songs with local bands. But she wanted more, and since 2013 has taken centre stage with her own original acoustic music that blends folk and blues. Currently, Lacey is booking shows and hustling her new sophomore album “M” (released Feb. 2017 and available on iTunes!), all while expanding her local fan bases in Six Nations, Hamilton,Toronto, and beyond by conducting half-a-dozen shows a month.
Some of her exciting accomplishments include: Planet IndigenUS Showcase at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, ON; JUNO Music Crawl in Hamilton, ON; The Red Ride Tour at Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, ON; And most recently, her own CD release part at Kanata Village, Six Nations, on Feb. 2018. Lacey’s new album “M” (528 Vol. 2), released Feb. ’17 is available everywhere digital music is sold.

We are overwhelmed with gratitude for your continued support of the Centre and the work we do! Executive Director Heather George writes “Our supporters and donors have once again displayed their generosity and that they, like all of us at Woodland, are passionate about cultural reclamation, preservation, and celebration. Your support of our language department is an act of true kindness and love. Our languages are so much more than words on paper – language frames deep philosophical and relational understandings that help all of us engage in kinder, more compassionate ways and is an important part of our healing from the trauma of residential school. Like many not-for-profit organizations that participate in #GivingTuesday, charitable donations form an important part of our financial wellbeing and they are also an important indication that you believe in us and the work we do. Wa’tkwanonhwerá:ton’ (I to you all, sending forth embracing, celebratory, good energy)”Thanks to your generous contributions we were able to raise $25,352 in support of the preservation of Hodinohsho:ni languages and the important revitalization work being done at Woodland. Nya:węh/Niá:wen to the Dufresne-Ray Family Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation, which for the fourth consecutive year in a row has matched the first $5,000 of your donations.
