Nimkish is a rising Indigiqueer pop artist living on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, known as Vancouver, Canada. Her first album, Heartbreak On The Coast, was released in 2019 and and her latest single, YSB, featuring artist ASCXNSION, came out just a few days ago, to her fans’ great delight. Her new album, Damage Control, was written during a period of uncertainty, offering an intimate and vulnerable glimpse into her life.
In this conversation with host Shayla Oulette Stonechild, Nimkish speaks of her creative process, of the challenges that come with being an Indigiqueer artist, and she shares her views on a future anchored in matriarchy and a return to an Indigenous way of life.
