Neil Young, Diana Krall To Perform Charity Gigs In Canada

Neil Young will team up with Diana Krall to help raise money for a Canadian charity in January.

The two Canadian born, American based musicians will perform for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN) Legal Defense Fund. The ACFN is a charity that fights against oil companies and governments that are obstructing their traditional lands and rights.

The ACFN refer to themselves as K’ai Taile Dene, meaning “people of the land of the willow.”

According to a statement from Young’s record label Warner Music, “As people of the land the ACFN have used and occupied their traditional lands in the Athabasca region for thousands of years, hunting, trapping, fishing and gathering to sustain themselves and continue spiritual cultural rights passed down through generations. The ACFN’s legal challenges will ensure the protection of their traditional lands, eco-systems and unique rights guaranteed by Treaty 8, the last and largest of the nineteenth century land agreements made between First Nations and the Government of Canada, are upheld for the benefit of future generations”.
