Laura Niquay is an Atikamekw artist from Wemotaci. Her singular hoarse voice strongly evokes her deep roots to the territory. Through her pop-rock and use of guitar reminiscent of folk, she shares her positive messages of perseverance, prevention and self-sacrifice and wants to reach the youth and speak of difficult issues such as suicide, drugs and the living conditions on the reserve. But beyond her words in Atikamekw and French, she offers modern and optimistic music for her people and for humanity. She is a committed woman who uses music to demonstrate the positive values of her community and the hope that must never die. She is a role model for young people and women in her community. A resolutely modern nomad.
