Oki, Danit’ada, Aba Wa0teč, Hello!
A member of the Kainai Nation of the Blackfoot Confederacy, Troy Emery Twigg is an arts instigator, educator, choreographer, performer, and director. Troy comes from a varied and diverse training and background in arts and education. He brings to Making Treaty 7 a national reputation with twenty years of experience in building arts communities, dance, theatre, performance and creative activities.
It’s an honour to have this opportunity to keep our dream and vision alive and to take Making Treaty 7 into its next chapter. Our collaborations, upcoming projects, school programs, and the potential of taking the production on tour is extremely exciting!
I look forward to working with the artists, committees, staff, Board of Directors and communities that work very hard in continuing to build this amazing legacy.
