It was wonderful to warm up the participants with bhangra moves in “Positive Steps to Mental Health” walk, organized by Mental Health Association of Yukon (MHAY) this morning! The walk kicked off Mental Illness Awareness Week events in Whitehorse, which are also being organized all over Canada.

It was also uplifting to see so many people in Whitehorse coming together and talking loudly about mental health.

Almost one half (49%) of those who feel they have suffered from depression or anxiety have never gone to see a doctor about this problem. ~ Canadian Mental Health Association

Bhangra with Students from Alaska

Posted on Leave a comment

These so many young students from different schools of Alaska were travelling through Whitehorse yesterday. Their tour organizers invited me do a bhangra session with them. I volunteered my time with them. They nailed down the most toughest bhangra moves in just half an hour! They told me that they have been watching my videos in Alaska. It was such an honour for me❤! I love that now the Yukon is also getting known in the world as the bhangra capital 😊!

When Cold Dawson City Gets Warmed Up with Bhangra Moves

Gurdeep Pandher | Dawson City | Bhangra | Oora Aara – The Song of Punjabi Alphabet


It was the month of January in the town of Dawson City of the Yukon, Canada. It was cold. It was actually really very-cold. The fire was out as well. Then the people of Dawson decided to dance Punjabi folk-dance Bhangra to warm themselves up. And it worked.

Gurdeep Pandher​ trained local people to dance bhangra and then choreographed it in the Dawson streets to fire up the energy of the bodies.

People enjoyed dancing to bhangra and it also created pure happiness along with the rich-warmth of dance energy.

The Councillor with the City of Dawson government, Billy Kendrick and his team, brought cameras to film it.

And so true, in Dawson City, people found gold and we have found “golden hearts” there.

Dawson City is located in the Yukon Territory of Canada. It the place where Gold Rush happened between years 1896 and 1899. The area is also known as the Klondike region of the Yukon. Dawson City is also known for the marvelous writings of the Yukon poet Robert W. Service.

Bhangra is the folk-dance of Punjab.

Lyrics:-

Je ma boli nun bhull jawonge
Kakhan vich rull jawonge

Oora aara eeree sassa haha, saadi jaan hai
Sadi pachhan hai
Saadi jind jaan hai

Kakka khakha gagga ghagha ghanyna, kanth kariyo
Ehde naal khadio
Ehnoo nitt padiyo

Chacha chhachha jajja jhajha nayeeya, dilan ch rakhiyo
Nanak de bachiyo
Dashmesh de bachiyo

Tanka thatha dadda dhadha naana, chardi kala hai
Har ikk da bhala hai
Sarbhat da bhala hai

Tatta thatha dadda dhadha nanna, nirbhayo riho
Har ikk nun jaa kiho
Boli nun saambh liyo

Pappa faffa bhabha bhabha mamma, ma Punjabi hai
Sadi ma Punjabi hai
Ammi Punjabi hai

Yayeeya rarra lalla vava rada, bachiyan nu dassiyo
Parivaar nu dassiyo
Nagar ch dassiyo

‪Honoured to be at International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination Rally

Posted on Leave a comment

It was an honour to share some words to mark “International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination” yesterday in Whitehorse, Yukon.

It was amazing to listen to other wonderful speakers like Lillian, Paul, Yvonne, Elder Smith, and Yukon Commissioner too.

It was also wonderful to see mayor of Whitehorse Dan Curtis, Minister John Streicker, Minister Jeanie Dendys, director of Yukon Human Rights Commission Jessica Lott Thompson, Councillor Jocelyn Curteanu, Councillor Roslyn Woodcock and many other friends joining in, braving the cold in such a heavy snowy day.

Thanks to Yukon Human Rights Commission, Yukon Federal of Labour, for organizing the rally.

Later, it was also a powerful moment to witness Yukon Legislative Assembly honouring “International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination”.

Thank you, all the members from Yukon NDP, Yukon Liberal Party, and Yukon Party, for sharing beautiful words to mark the day in the assembly.

During the Pink Shirt Day, on February 28, 2018,  at Watson Lake Secondary School in the Yukon, Canada, Gurdeep Pandher and school students wore pink shirts and danced Bhangra together under the slogan “Nice Needs No Filter”. This special event was held to raise anti-bullying awareness in our schools, homes, workplaces and online. We all need to stand together against bullies.

Sometimes, mental health conditions or unhealthy upbringing or peer pressures can create bullies too. So, we need more mental health education and practitioners to study the behaviour so that the best measures are adopted to prevent it.

Everyone deserves safe spaces to live their lives to the fullest.

Lyrics:-
Nice needs no filter
It really needs no filter
Nice means embrace all
Love all and respect all
All colours are beautiful
All choices are beautiful
It’s Ok to be different
It’s OK to feel different
Be unique Be yourself
Dance together and create friendships
Treat others equally
Think about your words and actions
Don’t be a bully
We all are people
We all are the same
Love everyone for who they are
Live without judgement
Love all people
Let’s stop bullying
Let’s end bullying forever
Nice needs no filter

On behalf of Canadian Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, Yukon’s Member of Parliament Hon. Larry Bagnell organized a roundtable in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory to seek views of Yukon’s cultural organizations this week on the citizenship study guide.

“Bhangra – Dance of Punjab 2017” concert in Whitehorse, Yukon was amazingly successful and wonderful! Inspired by our slogan “Diversity Over Division”, we have put together a show displaying that we can do things together!

We presented a show displaying that we can do things together! It was a fully Made-in-Yukon show. We had 90 performers, all Yukoners and 350 people came to watch it in the middle of busy December month.

And we showcased harmony in the Yukon diversity! We presented our Sikh-Punjabi culture in an exquisitely beautiful way and also blended it with many other Yukon cultures and arts. And we all did it together. We presented many arts from bhangra to Fiddleheads tunes, Celtic bhangra with Crooked folk, bhangra by the Yukon youth from EMYS, bhangra by Yukon College staff, bhangra-blues fusion mix dance, and many more things. We also screened 4 Yukon made viral bhangra videos. The mayor Mr. Dan Curtis learned once again on the stage how to wear a Sikh turban. We also had bhangra dance party after the concert. And thorough this show, the Yukon gave a great message to the world that “Diversity is over division” and we all are one.

And we succeeded in delivering the core message of acceptance of all the styles, choices, ideas, and diversity to the world, right from our Yukon stage!

Thank you, Keitha Clark, Jerome McIntyre, Bj MacLean, Monique Chatterton, Krisandra Dawn, Mayor Dan Curtis, Amanda Fraser, Katie Lynn, Mellisa Murray, Daniel Ashley from Dash Root Sellers, Matt Jacques, Jake Paleczny, Josh Jansen, Geny Mangilog, Lianne Cranfield, Matt King, Lee Carruthers, Emily Payne, Jenn Redvers, Janna van Kessel, Nisa Falkiner, MaryAnn Ferguson, Jordan Patrick, Minister Jeanie Dendys, Shana Ermatinger, Jessica McNabb, Yukon College students, volunteers, community members, YAC Staff, Yukon Government, friends, family, and everybody! Enjoy the photos!

Tonight’s Bhangra dance concert here in Whitehorse embodied the words, ‘Diversity Over Division’. Gurdeep (in collaboration with dozens of members of our awesome community) created a beautiful celebration that encourages diversity through the universal language of dance. I’m still smiling—and dancing! ~ Grace Snider

Diversity Over Division. Amazing week with the Winter Show in Ghùch Tlâ Community school in the tagish community in Carcross and also the Bhangra and diversity show of my friend Gurdeep Singh Pandher at the Yukon Art Center. Do you know a place which you can see a Mayor dancing bhangra and wear a turban? In Yukon. Of course! ~ Véronique Lachance
