Here’s how to get your Indigenous language and music heard on CBC’s Reclaimed

By
Jarrett Martineau

Tell us where you’re from

We love hearing Indigenous languages being spoken and we want to hear more of them on CBC.

We’ve featured greetings in many Indigenous languages from community members across the country and all over the world —including nêhiyawêwin, Te Reo Maori, Anishinaabemowin, Inuktitut, Kanien'kéha, Haida, Michif, and more — and we want to hear from you!

To have your voice heard on Reclaimed, please record a quick audio file — could be an MP3, WAV or even an iPhone voice memo! — saying the following, in your language (as well as in English):

“Hello/greetings! I’m [your name] from [your nation/treaty territory/clan/region] and you’re listening to Reclaimed on CBC Radio.”

Send the audio to reclaimed@cbc.ca and we’ll let you know if you’ll be on the air.

Submit your music

If you’re an Indigenous artist who would like to submit music to Reclaimed, please send audio files (WAV format preferred) to music.library@cbc.ca with the subject line: Attention Reclaimed.

Don’t forget to:

  • Attach digital files or download links with album art and liner notes listing: artist, composer and production credits
  • Include a bio and/or presskit with contact information

Once we’ve received your submission, we’ll review for possible future programming on Reclaimed as well as other CBC programs.

Artists are also encouraged to create a profile and upload their music to the CBC Music artist pages.

Listen and share the show

Reclaimed airs Wednesdays at 7 p.m. ET on CBC Music, and Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on CBC Radio One.

If you missed any episode of the show, or if you want to listen back to all of our past episodes, head to cbcmusic.ca/reclaimed.
