Miranda Currie is a northern indigenous artist living and working among the Dene people in Sombe K’e, more widely known, as Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. She walks in two worlds, with one foot in her Swampy Cree heritage and the other foot in her Euro-Canadian ancestry. Her mission is to create authentic northern indigenous content that is accessible to children and families.
Nominated for aboriginal singer songwriter of the year by the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2015 for Up In the Air, Miranda continued to hone her talents as a fiddle and guitar playing songstress while transitioning to the genre of children’s music and entertainment. In 2018 she released her first children’s album Bouncing in the Boreal and is set to release Tickling the Taiga in May of 2022!
In addition to being a musician, Currie is a filmmaker. Her film Tails on Ice premiered at the Cannes Short Film Festival in 2021. Miranda is a dedicated land-based educator and author of 4 children’s books. Using music and the land, she helps young people connect to indigenous language and culture. She lives in a cozy shack on the shores of the Great Slave Lake with her two sled dogs Niyanin and Ellesmere.
