Kashtin were a Canadian folk rock duo in the 1980s and 1990s, one of Canada’s most famous First Nations musical groups. The band was formed in 1984 by Claude McKenzie and Florent Vollant, two Innu from the Maliotenam reserve in northern Quebec. The name Kashtin means "tornado on the horizon" in the Innu-aimun language, but was also chosen as a pun on the English language phrase "cashed in", in response to friends who alleged that the band was selling out.
