Representation, Identification and Citizenship:
The Politics of Hip Hop Culture in Northern Canada
“You Can’t Stop the Hip Hop”
In this paper, I offer some initial thoughts on the concepts of
representation, identification, and citizenship in relation to some of
the education-based hip hop programs occurring in Iqaluit and Clyde
River, two very distinct hip hop communities in Nunavut.
Those of use who were at the CSTM conference were able to hear Charity
present on some of her work in using the Interactive Media and
Performance labs with youth in Regina. Personally I thought she was a
very engaging speaker. This paper looks more specifically to her work
in northern communities. For more information, please see the music
