Nestaweya means “three points” in Cree. Locally, it represents The Forks and the great rivers that brought the Cree, Ojibwe and Dakota peoples together. As a special offering for Winnipeg, City of Song, Dead of Winter celebrates water and the pre-settler roots of Winnipeg with a concert featuring the music of Indigenous composers Melody McKiver, Ian Cusson and Andrew Balfour set to the words of Metis poet/author Katharena Vermette, and will include Indigenous Songkeepers..

This concert has been chosen as one of the first to be performed in the new Desautels Concert Hall, opening in September 2024 at the University of Manitoba.
