Eekwol (born Lindsay Knight) is a Muskoday First Nationrapper who is a solo female aboriginal hip hop artist." Her music offers Natives, and Native Women in particular, a positive alternative to negative, violent stereotypes.

She won Best Hip Hop/Rap Album at the 2005 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards for the “Apprentice to the Mystery” album, along with Mils (her brother and producer). The same album was nominated at the Indian Summer Music Awards in 2005, and the Aboriginal Peoples’ Choice Music Awards in 2006. Her video for "Too Sick" has been featured on the Aboriginal Peoples' Television Network, MTV Canada and Muchmusic. She served on the panel of adjudicators for the Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor's Arts Awards in 2008.
