Summary Dueck considers several genres of music and dance currently performed in First Nations and Metis communities in Manitoba, including fiddling, step dancing, country music, and gospel song. He also explores some of the contexts in which these genres are performed, including concerts, coffeehouses, dance competitions, and funerary wakes. He looks at how Manitoban aboriginal musicians engage with musical intimates and mass-mediated audiences; how they negotiate the possibilities mass mediation affords; and how, in doing so, they extend and elaborate indigenous sociability.
