Caught the first hour of Collaborative Native North America Gathering.
Heard from people who were there, during half-way Rosanna got the news from the verdict of Colton Boushie murder trial. That Gerald Stanley was found not guilty and there was shock from the audience.
It was definitely a heavy and emotional concert.
