The Road to Athabasca: 1000 miles of peddling, pipelines & pilgrimage

Elsewhere's February resident, Erika Lundahl, shares stories and multimedia video of connection from The Road to Athabasca, a 1000-mile bicycle pilgrimage along the Trans Mountain oil pipeline to the tar sands of Northern Alberta. The pilgrimage, which features dozens of interviews collected during her travels, are the subject of her artist residency this month. During her time here she will be working on a song series & multimedia book project called “THUNDERLAND” exploring land sovereignty, energy infrastructure, and personal transformation through the ritual of pilgrimage

Erika Lundahl is a Seattle-based multimedia writer and musician navigating the climate crisis. Her writing has appeared in YES! Magazine, Truthout!, among others. A classically-trained vocalist, she weaves heart forward, original lyrics with words of women poets of past eras. Her albums include “Songs of Shattering” and “Brambles.”
